Agribusiness professionals and crop producers will take a hands-on approach to learning at the July 13 midsummer Crop Management Diagnostic Clinic.  The training session provides the opportunity to get a close-up look at field conditions, research and techniques at the University of Nebraska’s Crop Management Diagnostic Clinics.

The Nebraska Extension clinic begins with 7:30 a.m. registration at the Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead and starts at 8 a.m. Participants will meet at the August N. Christenson Research and Education Building.

Keith Glewen, Nebraska Extension educator said, “Nebraska Extension is sharing quality information that will help those attending sharpen their crop management and diagnostic skills.  Benefits of the crop management and diagnostic clinics include one-on-one attention, on-site plot demonstrations, interaction with other participants, discussions about cutting edge research and an opportunity to earn continuing education credits through Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) program."

  • Assessing soybean defoliation by insects

  • genetic resistance management, and
  • weed control. 

The training also includes a session with Elwynn Taylor, Extension Climatologist, Iowa State University, “What is the Weather this Season Doing to My Crop? To the Nation? Is There a True Analog Year?”
