K-State soybean production schools set for January

A series of four K-State Soybean Production Schools will be offered in January to provide in-depth training for soybean producers.

Topics presented at the schools will include weed control strategies, crop production practices, soil fertility and nutrient management, insect and disease control and risk management, said Ignacio Ciampitti, K-State Research and Extension crop production specialist.

The schools will begin at 9 a.m. and adjourn at 2.30 p.m., and will include a farmer panel at the end of each school. The dates are Jan. 25, 26, 28 and 29. Lunch will be provided, courtesy of the sponsors. There is no cost to attend, but participants are asked to pre-register before Jan. 22.
