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 22 years. It was a direct response to requests from farmers for more access to the vast corn production knowledge of the Farm Journal Field Agronomists.
This two-day session offers:
  • Hands-on Farm Journal agronomy classes.
  • Integrated classroom and field training to help attendees quickly move their production skills to the next level
  • Classes that help attendees understand the Ken Ferrie’s  Systems Approach to Crop Production.
  • Training that helps attendees learn agronomic management techniques that raise yields and increase dollar/acre return.
  • Unprecedented access to Ken Ferrie and Missy Bauer –  in group settings, breakouts and with question/answer.

The Systems Approach 
The Systems Approach requires understanding how one process influences others. This pyramid shows how one management change affects many other factors and ultimately yield. Read or watch how you can benefit from using Ken Ferrie's Systems Approach by clicking here.
