Agronomy school planned for local farmers

| January 7, 2015

COSHOCTON – Area farmers are encouraged to attend a local Agronomy School to learn about different aspects of growing soybeans, corn and other commercial agricultural crops. OSU Extension professionals will lead the school which will be on Wednesday, Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Conesville United Methodist Church. Some of the topics of discussion will include: fertilizer certification, getting started with cover crops, cover crop and fertilizer economics, water quality, and more.

Experts from across the state will be at the school to share their expertise, so don’t miss out on this opportunity. Fertilizer Certification requirements will be satisfied by attending this year’s Agronomy School.

Due to a grant through the Ohio Soybean Council, registration is only $30 and will include a light breakfast, lunch, and a copy (participant’s choice) of either the Forage Field Guide or Cover Crops Field Guide. Certified Crop Advisory (CCA) credits are also available.

To register for 2015 Agronomy School, stop by the Coshocton County Extension office and complete a registration form or download a form at coshocton.osu.edu. Registration is due by Jan. 20. If you have questions about the program, contact Emily Adams at 622-2265.
