The 2011 Winter Wheat Workshops will take place March 30 and 31, and April 1. The theme for the 2011 workshops is, “The Timeline of Decisions for Wheat Management”. Topics include wheat growth staging, disease and insect diagnostics, nitrogen and weed management, and post-harvest management issues including cover crops, nutrient implications of straw harvest and manure applications. Participants will be able to work “hands-on” with plant material to improve their knowledge of growth staging in relation to management decisions.
Speakers for the 2011 workshops include: Shawn Conley (State Soybean and Small Grains Specialist), Paul Esker (Field Crops Extension Plant Pathologist), and Jim Stute (UWEX Rock County).
Registration will begin at 10:30 AM with the program to start at 11 AM and be finished by 3 PM. Lunch will be provided.
