Farm Science Review 2016: Last Minute Reminders

Harvest has started in some areas of Ohio. At the Farm Science Review we have some of the crop off to allow demonstrations to begin. Field demonstrations will include soybean and corn harvest, of course; plus drones/UAVs, soil sampling, planters, precision nutrient placement and drainage installation.

Visit the Agronomic Crops Team. We will again be the welcoming crew as you enter the grounds from the public parking lot on the east side of the exhibit area. We can talk about weeds, insects or disease; continue on with a discussion about corn and soybean production practices and more. We also have in place long-term demonstrations on soil quality along with several cover crops. New this year are presentations at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm every day on nitrogen management, choosing sprayer tips for herbicide tolerant crops, soil quality, and weed identification. Stop off in the Agronomy Plots as you arrive or on the way out. 

CCAs can get continuing education credits at the Gwynne Conservation area, the Small Farm Center and with us in the Agronomy Crops Team Plots, watch for the FSR CCA College signs.  Presentations that offer CCA credits are noted on the Farm Science Review Demonstration and Event Schedule that is available on line at http://fsr.osu.edu, then click on the visitors tab to find the schedule.
