A series of three K-State Sorghum Production Schools will be offered in early February 2018 to provide in-depth training targeted for sorghum producers and key stakeholders. The schools will be held at three locations around the state. The one-day schools will cover many issues facing sorghum growers: weed control strategies; production practices; nutrient fertility; and insect and disease management.

The dates and locations of the K-State Sorghum Production Schools are:

Feb. 6 – Dodge City - Boot Hill Casino Conference Ctr., 4100 W Comanche St
