2022 Crop-Tech Consulting Virtual Winter College

Crop-Tech Virtual Winter College will be a 1-day session on January 4th, 2022. This event brings together farmers and industry professionals that want to continue to improve their operation and break through yield barriers. We will take a portion of our 2-day in-person event to create the agenda for this 1 day virtual event. The day will include updates to show the follow through to yield and will also have live Q & A segments throughout. The event will be on January 4th but attendees will also be able to review the material for two weeks after the live event.

We have selected 6 sessions from the two-day in person 2021 Summer Corn and Soybean College to put together a 1-day Virtual Winter College.

  • Sessions will start on Tuesday, January 4th at 8 a.m. Central Standard Time, break for lunch, and then conclude around 4 p.m.
  • The day will feature agronomists: Ken Ferrie, Isaac Ferrie, and Matt Duesterhaus. There will be live question and answer segments throughout the event.
  • The virtual meeting will be on the WebinarJam platform. No camera or microphone needed. Attendees can submit typed questions during the meeting via the chat box.
  •  If you attended the in-person event in 2021 you are already registered for the virtual day, but if you weren’t able to make it in person this summer you can purchase the virtual event for $200+processing. Registering a group of 10 or more will earn you a $50 discount per ticket.

Presentation List:

  • Intro to the Environmental Triangle
    • The environmental triangle is made up of three components that are interconnected. You can be aware of what is happening in the environment around you and react accordioning, or you can let the environment happen to you, but ultimately the choice is yours.
  • Covers, Carbon Credits, and CO2
    • Tillage systems, crop rotation, cover crop selection and kill timing, and soil fertility can all impact the amount of carbon sequestration and CO2 released. This presentation will ensure that you understand the whole system before you implement a change and set realistic expectations on the true costs and benefits.
  • Navigating Through Nutrient Regulations
    • This session looks across several different programs available today that are trying to solve the nutrient management issue, their ease of use, and their challenges and benefits. Growers can be better equipped to navigate their way through current and future nutrient management plans, whether they be voluntary or mandated.
  • Managing Your Subsurface Environment
    • This session examines soil density and the impact it can have on root growth and water availability.  From the plow, all the way to no-till and cover crops, your residue management decisions impact soil density.  Attendees will head to the field virtually to see root digs and soil pits that demonstrate how to evaluate different subsurface environments.
  • Maximizing the Natural Environment for High Yield Soybeans
    • Environmental changes are giving us more frost-free days in April . This breakout will cover how planting date, maturity selection, seed bed preparation, and timing of post herbicide application can help maximize these “free” days.
  • The Stress Test
    • How many ways can you manage stress? Every decision you make throughout the growing season will either add or alleviate stress for your growing crop. This breakout demonstrates how making these decisions on hybrid selection, population, crop rotation, residue management and more can manage stress and maximize yield.
