Crop producers and agribusiness personnel are invited to attend the Iowa State University Extension Crop Advantage Series to be presented at 11 locations around the state in January and February 2002. This series of conferences will emphasize how the 2001 crop problems will influence pest management and other decisions in 2002, as well as the latest integrated crop management technology. All of the events will feature Mike Duffy (Department of Economics, ISU) on "The New Farm Bill and the Changing Structure of Agriculture," and Elwynn Taylor (Department of Agronomy, ISU) on "Managing Weather Risk for Production and Marketing." Participants will have the opportunity to choose among various workshops at the conference sites. Certified crop advisers can obtain credit by attending these conferences. Contact your local county extension office for more details.
