The Marion County Extension Office is encouraging local producers to consider taking part in next week’s crop advantage program. Director Dale Miller says our regional program will take place next Tuesday at Honey Creek Resort in Moravia. Topics in the all-day program include corn rootworm management strategies and nutrient management. Those who attend can also receive their yearly pesticide applicator recertification.
