Growing season discussed at annual Agronomy Day
SHABBONA – The Northern Illinois Agronomy Research Center in Shabbona will host its summer Agronomy Day on Wednesday, July 10. University of Illinois Extension specialists and researchers will address issues pertinent to the 2013 growing season. The program begins at 9 a.m. and will finish with a meal at noon. Everyone is welcome and there is no fee.
A Corn Rootworm Root Rating Field Day is offered in conjunction with the Agronomy Day. Producers and agronomists are invited to bring corn root samples to the NIARC. The roots will be washed and evaluated. After lunch a general discussion will allow producers to assess their corn rootworm injury and learn about sustainable corn rootworm management.
Weather permitting, presentations will take place outside in the research plots. Field topics include crop rotation and corn management, corn rootworm resistance to Bt and product efficacy, Goss’ wilt and corn diseases, brown marmorated stink bug in Illinois, 2013 weed control challenges, and University of Illinois cover crop studies.
