Event Description

The 2016 cropping year was a challenging one!  We were faced with the challenges of record flooding in the spring, and then near record drought and high temperatures over the course of the summer.  Will weather extremes be the new normal?  If so, we need to equip ourselves with new cropping techniques..  Let’s pick the brains of 3 agronomists - Andy van Niekerk, Deb Campbell, and Blair Scott. They will present their key findings, followed by a detailed Q and A session.

When?      Thurs. Mar. 9, 2017, 1:00 to 4:30 pm

Cost?        $10.00 per person
