Southeast Iowa Agricultural Research Association Holds Annual Meeting Thursday | Radio KCII

Farmers and crop advisors are invited to attend the annual meeting of the Southeast Iowa Agricultural Research Association this Thursday.

This free event takes place at the ISU Johnson County Outreach and Outreach Office in Iowa City, and will include a review of 2021 activities and plans for 2022 from the Southeast Research Farm Superintendent of Iowa, Cody Schneider, an update on crop disease research from Professor Alison of Iowa State University. Robertson, and a crop market perspective from agricultural extension management specialist Ryan Drollette, among other topics. Field agronomist Rebecca Vittetoe explains why this annual meeting is held: “The general purpose is just to give people an update on what’s going on at the research farm and to share some of the research going on and what what we learned from this research. But it also gives people the opportunity to visit and if there are any ideas of what we should do at the research farm, it’s a great opportunity for people to also share.

Refreshments and registration begin at 9:30 a.m. and the meeting lasts from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Certified Crop Advisors can earn Continuing Education Units for their participation. For more information, contact Ryan Drollette at [email protected] or 319-337-2145.
