In crop production, what is the likelihood of seeing a positive economic return on investment (ROI) from a foliar fungicide application or a “build and maintain” soil fertility program? Which strategies are worth the time and money when managing soybean aphid? What seed and technology trait decisions are the most important for your operation?
Farmers and others in ag can hear the latest University of Minnesota research and information addressing these questions and more at the 2019 “Strategic Farming – Maximizing Return on Investment” workshops. Not only will key cost factors in crop budgets be reviewed, but tips will also be provided to help evaluate ag research and marketing claims in order to make the best management decisions on the farm.
Registration is now open at z.umn.edu/strategic-farming for these workshops sponsored by University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council. Registration at least 7 days prior to each event is strongly encouraged in order to guarantee a seat, handouts, and a meal.
