K-State Research and Extension is partnering with Kansas Corn to host three regional K-State Corn Production Management Schools to be held in January in western, central and eastern Kansas. These will provide in-depth training targeted for corn producers. These sessions are free for producers to attend and we will work to ensure CCA credits are available. Schools will be followed by a tour.


The one-day schools will cover up-to-date and specific corn topics: corn management, high-yielding corn factors, weed control, soil fertility, price and market perspectives. After lunch, participants will have the opportunity to participate in discussions and information specific to their region.


The school and lunch are offered at no cost, but participants are asked to pre-register before Jan. 6.
