Weather and new varieties will be in the spotlight at 2017 Agronomy Update in Lethbridge on Jan. 17-18.
“New varieties are always showing up with different growing seasons,” said provincial crop specialist Harry Brook. “We’ve got producers in the south who are successfully growing soybeans. There is new information every year when it comes to the range of crops a producer can choose.”
Agro-meteorologist Ralph Wright will speak about services and programs available for producers “to get ahead of the weather report.” Other topics include how much fertilizer to use, nutrient availability, and the best crop rotations.
