Nebraska Corn Production Clinic Planned for Feb. 5 in Aurora

Nebraska Extension wants to help you take your corn production to the next level with topics relating to year-round soil nitrogen management, corn planter setup and adjustments, nitrogen sources and stabilizers for corn, and much more. The 2024 Nebraska Corn Production Clinic will be held Monday, Feb. 5 at the Commercial Building, Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Aurora, Nebraska, starting at 9 a.m. with breakfast refreshments and time to visit with the vendors at the display booths.

Presentations will start at 9:30 a.m. with Nebraska Corn Growers and USDA updates, and conclude about 3:45 p.m. The event has a great lineup of excellent speakers focusing on all things corn, plus several ag display booths.

The educational program, sponsored by Nebraska Extension, begins at 9:30 a.m. and includes the following presentations:

  • Corn Planter Setup and Adjustments
  • Advanced Agronomy Cultural Practices
  • Management of Insect Damage in Corn
  • Management of Plant Diseases in Corn Including Tar Spot
  • IPM for Successful Weed Management in Corn
  • Year-round Soil Water Management
  • Year-round Soil Nitrogen Management and Nitrogen Sources and Stabilizers for Corn
  • Setting Up and Operating Fertilizer Application Equipment

CCA credits are available for each presentation.

The ag day event is consistently ranked by the farmers who attend as one of the best educational ag events.

“The one-day, research-based clinic starts at the big picture level and then drills into the issues that are central to making corn production decisions with the goal of a more profitable corn crop,” said Steve Melvin, Nebraska Extension cropping systems educator and event coordinator. “The day is free of charge to the participants thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors. Our noon meal sponsor is Grosshans in Aurora.”

Mark your calendars for Feb. 5 and plan to attend the Nebraska Corn Production Clinic in Aurora.
