FSR Agronomy College – September 12
Agronomists, Certified Crop Advisers (CCA) and custom applicators can stay current on agronomy issues during the Farm Science Review Agronomy College, hosted by the Ohio AgriBusiness Association in partnership with Ohio State University Extension on Sept. 12.
Held one week before the start of the annual Farm Science Review at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio, the event will bring industry experts, OSU staff and researchers, and agronomy service providers together to enhance collective knowledge through presentations, hands-on activities, demonstrations, equipment exhibits and more.
“The Agronomy College will help agronomists and applicators better serve their customers,” said Harold Watters, certified professional agronomist, CCA and assistant associate professor in agricultural and natural resources at OSU. “Attendees will be able to confidently apply current research and knowledge in their businesses thanks to the solid lineup of speakers and topics arranged for the day.”
