View from the Cab: Meeting time

Farm meeting season is in full swing and the Central Illinois Farm Network is happy to be participating in a couple of events planned for March.

“Agronomy Day: An Educational Panel” will be held Thursday, Mar. 5 at the Central Illinois Connection Center in downtown Chatsworth. I will serve as emcee during the meeting which includes several speakers and two different sessions: one from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the other 1:30-5:30 p.m.

Greg Ury with BASF will talk about evaluating the critical factors for soybean yield, Brad Rademacher of Corteva will cover insights on traits and genetics, Robert Clark of Stone Seed will review key learnings from 2019 and preparing for 2020 while Eric Ifft of Bayer discusses knowing your weed control tools.

Also, Erika Parker with Advanced Agrilytics presents “Taking corn yields to the next level.” She will analyze the relationship between breeding, technology and our production practices.

RSVP for one of the two sessions by calling 815-692-9711.

Our annual Central Illinois Farm Network Ag Outlook Meeting is set for Thursday, Mar. 12 at the Asmark Agricenter in Bloomington starting at 5:30 p.m. with dinner followed by the meeting. We are holding it at a different venue farther south this year with hopes of reaching out to our McLean County audience and radio listeners.

Market panelists include: Merrill Crowley with Midwest Market Solutions of Watseka, Ellen Dearden of AgReview in Morton and Dale Durchholz, formerly with Agrivisor in Bloomington. As you know, there is plenty to talk about these days with factors impacting the markets and these three will enlighten the crowd with their opinions.

To enjoy the free dinner Mar. 12 and listen to valuable information, simply reserve a spot by calling 217-530-3107. We will be glad to put you down and hope you take away something from the meeting.

How about that snow last week? Now it truly feels like winter since the temperatures plunged and white stuff covered the ground. I guess the Illinois groundhog that saw his shadow was right when he predicted six more weeks of winter.
