Field School for Ag Professionals: Registration Deadline Fast Approaching

The last day for standard registration for the Field School for Ag Professionals is July 16. Register now to reserve your spot for this premier summer educational opportunity that combines hands-on, interactive training with real world field scenarios. The first day of the Field School program focuses on core principles in agronomy, entomology, weed and soil sciences to build a strong foundation of skills and knowledge. The second day builds on this foundation with timely, cutting-edge topics that participants can select.

Featured sessions:
  • Basic Crop Diagnostics: Just getting started in crop diagnostics? This session will help you learn the process of crop troubleshooting in demonstration plots and learn how to use the “tools” of the trade, including how to interview farmers, ag professionals and others to learn more about the crop.
  • Advanced Crop Diagnostics: Get your hands dirty practicing crop diagnostics skills. This session is intended for practitioners with at least a basic level of crop troubleshooting experience. The exercises will take place in a series of crop diagnostic plots designed to mimic real world crop production problems.
The Field School for Ag Professionals will be held July 30 and 31 at the University of Minnesota Agriculture Experiment Station in St. Paul. This program is targeted toward agronomists, crop production retailers, seed dealers, consultants, crop protection industry representatives, government agency personnel, and summer field scouts.
