Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, January 3, 2019 Crop Advantage Series in Ames Helps Producers Make Smart Decisions for 2019 Crop Advantage meetings provide a solid foundation of current, research-based crop production information to help make smart, informed decisions for the farming operation. The 2019 meetings are an opportunity for farmers and crop advisers to hear current research and crop production information from Iowa State University. The Crop Advantage Series meeting in Ames will be held on January 9th, 2019, at the Quality Inn and Suites Starlite Village Conference Center. Extension specialists will provide updated management options and recommendations on current and future crop production issues. In addition, this meeting will also offer continuing education credits for Certified Crop Advisers (CCA) and pesticide safety recertification. Pesticide applicators should recognize attendance is required for the entire meeting to meet recertification requirements. “There is no other program in our crop production education year that we are able to bring this many extension specialists together to individual sites across the state like we are able to do with Crop Advantage meetings,” said Meaghan Anderson, field agronomist in central Iowa with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. In 2018 nearly 2,000 individuals attended one of the meetings across the state, representing all 99 Iowa counties and surrounding states. 84% of attendees responding to follow-up surveys said information from Crop Advantage would likely save them between $5 and $20 per acre. “Our goal is to prepare producers to manage potential issues when they arise, or even before they arise, by sharing the most up—to-date scientific knowledge-from Iowa State University,” said Mike Witt, field agronomist in west central Iowa. “Content at the meetings is driven by county needs and local production issues.” Program topics for the Ames location include the 2019 market outlook, lean and mean crop production, corn disease management, managing for herbicide resistance, nitrogen management in variable environments, soybean gall midge -an emerging pest, and the weather outlook and climate decision tools.
