Information to give your operation the Advantage.

Each year over 2,000 producers participate in a regional Crop Advantage meeting to hear updates on crop, pest and nutrient management, farm business topics, soil and water quality, and so much more.

And it's because of that strong show of support Iowa State University Extension specialists are working hard on the program for January 2015. Your feedback and topic suggestions help develop local programs that provide production information you can use.

The proceedings booklet provided at each location is now available online through the Iowa State University Extension Store as a free download.

Each day across Iowa, Extension field specialists like Paul Kassel, field agronomist (left) and Beth Doran, field beef specialist (right) are in the field meeting with farmers, listening to concerns and answering questions.

Crop Advantage brings the latest crop production information from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach to a location near you each January. Each location includes key statewide topics as well as a program developed by ISU field agronomists specifically for your region.
