This Farm Journal Corn College Advanced session provides practical, hands-on training to help corn growers advance their production skills, increase yields and improve their profitability. Corn College alumni ready to broaden their knowledge from previous years are encouraged to attend this one-day session.

Led by Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie and Bill Bauer of B&M Crop Consulting, the event includes general instruction, breakout sessions in the field and an expo showcasing corn production tools.

Founded in 2008, the Corn College builds on the success of the Farm Journal Test Plot program, which has been helping farmers do a better job of growing corn for 19 years. It is a direct response to requests from farmers for more access to the vast corn production knowledge of the Farm Journal Field Agronomists.

 This one-day session offers:

  • Hands-on Farm Journal agronomy classes with no sales pitch.
  • Integrated classroom and field training to help corn growers quickly move their production skills to the next level
  • Classes that help growers understand the Ken Ferrie’s Systems Approach to Crop Production
  • Training that helps growers learn agronomic management techniques that raise yields and increase their dollar/acre return.
  • Unprecedented access to Ken Ferrie and Bill Bauer – in group settings, breakouts and with question/answer venues

    This program WILL NOT offer CCA credits.
