Virtual Winter Agronomy Summits offer farmers advice


For farmers, it is so important to stay up to date on the latest findings. To help, Golden Harvest will host eight virtual Winter Agronomy Summits in January and February to provide farmers with timely agronomic advice to help start the 2021 growing season strong. The events will cover top-of-mind issues for farmers, including how to manage corn rootworm, corn silage, soybean weed control, new and emerging corn diseases, and more.

“Our network of local agronomists brings together a wide range of knowledge that helps farmers maximize yield potential,” said Steve Wilkens, Golden Harvest East agronomy manager. “We are eager to provide farmers with several virtual options to learn more about important crop management issues as they plan for the upcoming season.”
