Pinney Purdue Crop Diagnostic Training

Pinney Purdue Crop Diagnostic Training

The Pinney Purdue Diagnostic Training will provide a “hands-on” approach for teaching the art and science of accurately diagnosing crop problems for Northwest Indiana. The sessions should help those who work with field crops to fine-tune their season-long problem trouble-shooting skills and evaluate new and alternative management strategies. These sessions will provide pertinent information on interacting factors (nutrient, pest, and environmental stresses) that impact corn and soybean growth and development.
