Del Voight- Penn State Extension
A joint program between the Dairy team and the Crops Team will be held on January 20th 2015 at the Lebanon Expo Center in Lebanon. A full complement of credits will be offered in a breakout session format. Some highlights of the event are that Dr. Paul Knight will begin the general session with a weather outlook for the months of Feb to April and from May to July and again from August to September. He has been right on with his forecast from last winter. From there participants may choose which breakout to attend based on their credit needs. For those requireing a pesticide license then can attend 2 core and 2 category sessions in the morning and take in either manure, nutrient management or any of the other two silage and dairy sessions. The discussion of GMO in agriculture as well as local issues with the pipeline and how to remediate the value of disturbed soil will be discussed by both Williams pipeline and Dave Messersmith Penn State Extension. As we move toward more regulations this day long conference will meet the needs of growers in the area.
