This year the presentations at the longstanding Row Crop Short Course (3/3/22) will be specific to cotton and peanuts. With that in mind, the Panhandle Ag Extension Team planned the Panhandle Corn & Soybean Update in an effort to provide corn and soybean producers crucial updates specific to those crops to help them kickoff a successful growing season.

The in-person event will be held on February 11, 2022, at the Washington County Agricultural Center in Chipley, Florida. Presentations will begin at 9:45 (central time) and the event will conclude with a sponsored lunch. Topics and speakers are listed below (each presentation will address both corn and soybeans).

Disease Management—Dr. Bob Kemerait;

University of Georgia Extension Specialist, Plant Pathology

Weed Management—Dr. Eric Prostko;

University of Georgia Extension Agronomist, Weed Science

Insect Management—Dr. Katelyn Kesheimer;

Note: Some speakers will be in-person at the meeting, while others will present via video conference equipment.
