Growing Good Small Grains at the 2016 PFI Conference
On January 21-22, around 85 farmers from across the state gathered in Ames to learn about small grains crops (oats, wheat & barley) from industry professionals, researchers and fellow farmers at the “Growing Good Small Grains” course prior to Practical Farmers of Iowa’s annual conference. Most Iowa farmers spend plenty of time thinking about plant populations, plant protection products and fertilizer requirements for corn and soybeans. They know that each of these issues is crucial for good yields and better profits, but the same goes for small grains. The speakers focused on each of these concerns throughout the two-day course. More information about small grains production can be found at practicalfarmers.org/small-grains.
