2009 Winter Wheat Workshops

New for 2009! Please plan to join us in March as we offer for the first time winter wheat workshops in Wisconsin. Workshops are planned for March 5 in Janesville, March 6 in Fond du Lac, and March 12 in Waldo. Registration is $15 and includes handouts and lunch. These workshops are designed to improve your overall understanding and management of winter wheat production in Wisconsin. These workshops will include hands-on material and computer material (no computers required). Continuing education credit is also being requested in Crop and Pest Management.

Topics to be covered include: (i) winter wheat growth staging, (ii) nitrogen and herbicide management, (iii) disease diagnostics and foliar fungicides, (iv) effects of bin run seed and fungicide seed treatments, and (v) insect diagnostics. Workshop presenters include both Shawn and Paul as well as Dr. Eileen Cullen, UW-Extension Entomologist.
