Agronomy in the Field Workshops scheduled in northeast Iowa

Agronomy in the Field is a workshop series for women that provides learning opportunities for forage and crop production.

The focus is on developing agronomic decision-making skills that can be utilized on one’s own personal farm or family cropping operations, including water quality and conservation practices.

The workshops are organized by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and are useful for landowners, active farmers and farm families, and others in the agricultural industry interested in a refresher on agronomic basics. The workshops will include hands-on opportunities in fields to help participants solidify the concepts and information they learn.
