Battle for the Belt winter meeting set for March 8


What should you plant first – corn or soybean?

What crop has the smallest yield penalty for delayed planting? Can you adjust your management practices to mitigate losses due to late planting? How are diseases affected by planting date?

We will answer these questions and more during our Battle for the Belt Winter Meeting. Featured speakers from the Ohio State University include Dr. Osler Ortez, assistant professor – Corn & Emerging Crops, Dr. Laura Lindsey, professor – Soybean & Small Grains, Dr. Stephanie Karhoff, agronomy state field specialist, and Dr. Horacio Lopez-Nicora, assistant professor – Soybean Pathology and Nematology.

You are welcome to attend this very informational meeting on corn and soybean research practices to help you maximize your yield potentials in 2024. The in-person meeting will cost $10 and can be paid prior to the event or at the door. Lunch will be provided with support from Ohio Corn & Wheat, Ohio Soybean Council, Fayette County Agronomy Club, and Southwest Ohio Corn Growers.
