Is safflower in your future? Find out by attending an informational meeting on Friday, January 15 in Great Bend. The meeting starts at 11:00 a.m. and will end in the early afternoon. We do need you to call our office at (620) 793-1910 or e-mail me at by January 12, if you plan to attend so we can plan for lunch. There is no cost to attend, lunch will be provided. Location will be given when you pre-register.

Speakers will include Vic Martin, agronomist and alternative crops specialist at the K-State Experiment Field in Hutchinson. Also on the program will be Brian Bloom of Dreamland Industries in Abilene, Texas.

Safflower is an oil seed crop that is planted in the early spring when soil moisture is usually plentiful. It is very drought tolerant and has low input costs. It has a deep taproot that can breakup hardpans in the soil.
