Assessing soybean diseases and insect pressure can be difficult without proper training and experience. On July 8, 2014 farmers and crop consultants are invited to attend a 2 hour in-field session with Drs. Anne Dorrance and Andy Michel. Anne Dorrance is OSU Extension’s state specialist in soybean diseases and Andy Michel is the OSU Extension entomologist for agronomic pests. They will work with participants to identify insects and diseases and discuss when spray applications should be made.
The Union County session will be from 10 am until noon and the Champaign County session will take place from 2 pm to 4 pm. The field locations will be decided the week before the event and registrants will be notified at that time of the location. There is no cost to attend and the event is sponsored by the Ohio Soybean Council. Participation is limited to 25 at each location so register early if interested. Register by calling (937) 644-8117 or emailing Douridas.firstname.lastname@example.org. The event flyer with a mail-in registration form can be found at: go.osu.edu/agevents.
