Agronomy in the Field to meet

Jul 06, 2017

Agronomy in the Field is a multi-session workshop being offered for women landowners, farmers and ag retailers who are interested in learning more about agronomy. This is the second year this workshop series will be offered at the Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm near Crawfordsville. The next session for the 2017 Agronomy in the Field sessions is set for 5 p.m. on July 10. The last meeting will occur at the same time on Aug. 14.

The goals of this series are to strengthen agronomic skills for women that allow for better decision-making, provide a better understanding of inputs for crop production, see and understand different conservation practices, and increase confidence in communication with their spouse, farming partner, ag retailer, or tenant. This program is hosted by Extension field agronomists Meaghan Anderson and Rebecca Vittetoe.

Following each session, a recap of the workshop with resources and information will be sent to those interested in the meetings. There is no charge to participate and women are not required to attend every session to participate.

Any interested women landowners, farmers and service providers who would like to participate in upcoming sessions should contact ISU Extension and Outreach Field Agronomist, Meaghan Anderson, at 319-337-2145 or mjanders@iastate.edu, or Rebecca Vittetoe, at 319-653-4811 or rka8@iastate.edu.

Agronomy in the Field is sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, an NCR-SARE Partnership Grant Project ONC17-031. Local support is provided by Washington County Extension.
