Wheat Refresh and Field Walk

Whether it’s been a while since you’ve grown wheat or been a while since you have evaluated a wheat field, it is time to freshen up on how to do so. Even if you’re considering growing wheat for the first time, this event will get you started off on the right foot.

On March 30, we’ll walk a field with Dr. Laura Lindsey who will show us how to evaluate the field coming out of winter and refresh growth staging the wheat. Growth staging is critical for nutrient and crop protection applications. Resources and recommendations on disease scouting and control will also be shared.

Nate Douridas, Farm Manager of the Molly Caren Ag Center, will have a sprayer setup for nitrogen application which will lead into recommendations for wheat. An air seeder will also be setup to discuss seeding timing, row spacing and rates. There will be a combine with a wheat specific setup on site along with an equipment specialist from Ag-Pro Ohio to answer questions.

CCA credits offered: 1 CM, 1 NM.

Please RSVP for the free event. Doughnuts, coffee and a limited number of Corn, Soybean, Wheat and Alfalfa Field Guides will be provided. Contact information is needed to notify in the event of a cancellation.
