Coshocton and Muskingum County Extension for the 2019 Agronomy School!

Featured presentations include…

Grain Commodity Economics

Corn and soybean prices could not have been more different from the start of 2018 to the end of 2018, as decreasing world stocks and growing demand provided positive outlooks in the first half of the year contrasted with global trade tensions and record U.S. production in the second half of the year. What price range can be expected in 2019 and what does that mean for Ohio producers?

Farm Bill

It only happens once in a 5 to 7 year span, but the U.S. Farm Bill included major implications for producers and sets the bedrock of farm risk management. Farm bills happen in two phases: the legislative phase where Congress writes and passes amendments to U.S. farm policy, and the implementation phase by government agencies like the Farm Service Agency and the Risk Management Agency. The legislative process is finished and assumptions can be made about the implementation phase and what that means for Ohio producers and federal risk management offered for agriculture the next five years.

Manure Management

Manure is a good source of nutrients, but like any fertilizer material it needs to be used appropriately.  This presentation will cover manure use within the context of a 4 R program and current regulations.   Determining an appropriate manure application rate involves soil testing, manure nutrient analysis, crop yield goals and manure spreader calibration.

Weed Management

Waterhemp continues to increase throughout Ohio and will cause growers to spend $5 to $30.00 more per acre to manage depending upon current practices.  Giant ragweed is also increasing in Ohio and forces the use of a preemergence herbicides followed by two postemergence herbicide applications.
