AGRONOMY ESSENTIALS WORKSHOP
Cover-crop blends: Not everything's wonderful
Cattle on cropland: The hazards are many
The sorry truth about the Haney soil test
Piecing together a profitable & truly sustainable no-till cropping system.
• Are you as prepared as possible for low grain prices? Spend wisely!
• Dealing with the new reality of glyphosate-resistant Palmer pigweeds
(and what an ugly reality it is).
• Where grazing fits, and where it doesn’t.
• Straight talk about cover crops, and why in dry climates they will
increase fertilizer requirements in the following cash crop (until a
new equilibrium of soil OM is reached).
Continuing to discover and share ways of increasing profits (and/or decreasing risk) with minimal additional cost or labor, with an eye on improving—not degrading—the soil.
No sales pitches! Just straight answers from highly regarded agronomists and a soil scientist. Matt Hagny (Pinnacle) provides key knowledge gleaned from 22 yrs as an independent crop consultant, 99% of it in continuous low-disturbance no-till in KS, Okla, and farther abroad. Hagny is largely credited with bringing no-till to the region, and making it work. Leland Baxa, agronomist for Aurora Co-op and (justifiably) staunch no-till advocate, will share immense experience from his 20 yrs spot-checking fields in northwest KS, s.w. NE, CO, and w. OK. Despite working quite apart from each other, Baxa & Hagny have reached similar conclusions on many topics. John Grove, Ph.D, at U.Ky. brings his immense knowledge of soil properties and chemistry, with most of his research in the past couple decades being in continuous no-till, including looking at crop rotations and crop establishment.
"The best one-day seminar on no-till I have ever attended."
—Bob Morgenstern, longtime no-tiller, multi-year attendee, Hoisington, KS
“I want to thank you for your knowledge and your desire to help us be more profitable.”

"Overall, the panel and information was fabulous. I picked up quite a bit of information that will be useful immediately."
