Making and Impact April 2022 Crops and Coils

  • A multi-regional educational program (Finalizing Your Agronomic Input Decisions for 2022) for farmers, industry agronomists, and Land Conservation Department staff, where they learned about herbicide-resistant weed management, minimizing phosphorus runoff from farms fields, and spending fertilizer inputs wisely. The goal is to help farmers and industry agronomists learn about on-farm plant nutrient resources, how to reduce phosphorus runoff, and how to best manage herbicide-resistant weeds.
  • Conducted Pesticide Applicator Training for farmers interested in using Restricted Use Pesticides in their cropping systems. DATCP requires farmers to successfully pass a competency-based test in order to become certified. The training helps farmers prepare for the exam.
