Crop Diagnostic Training

Agribusiness professionals, consultants and educators who work with farmers will learn new strategies for identifying and responding to a variety of crop problems at an early season workshop at Purdue University's Pinney Purdue Ag Center (PPAC) near Wanatah,IN.

Participants will gain practical knowledge that will help them assist farmers in managing the nutrient, pest and environmental factors that influence plant growth and affect crop yields. The workshop is presented by experts from Purdue Extension Field Crops team.

The workshop is scheduled at Pinney Purdue Ag Center on Thursday, June 20, 9 a.m. to 3:45p.m. CDT. The training will cover topics relating to corn development, weed control, drone technology, soil health assessments, and irrigation sensors.

Pinney Purdue Ag Center is located at 11402 South County Line Road, Wanatah, IN, about 2 miles west of Wanatah and ½ mile north of US 30 on the La Porte-Porter County Line. Continuing education credits will be available for crop advisers (5 CEUs) and commercial pesticide applicators. Private applicators may also receive one credit from attending the workshop.
