Crop Summit

A Crop Summit was recently held at ECC"s Ag Center, talking about numerous ag-related topics, like nitrogen levels, soil sampling, and farming leases (to name a few).

In recent talks with Iowa State Extension field agronomist Angie Rieck-Hinz, she wanted to remind farmers of the importance of completing all the necessary certifications with the 2023 planting season quickly approaching: "One of the big things farmers should be thinking about right now... is to make sure they have all their certifications completed for this winter."

But many farmers are already well on their way, Rieck-Hinz clarified, "Most farmers are currently going through their private pesticide application recertification."
