The Crop Management Clinic will be offered on July 13-14, 2016 at the Field Extension Education Laboratory (FEEL) west of Ames, Iowa. Registration opens at 8:30 am and opening comments are at 9:00 am. Class adjourns on the first day at 4:00 pm. Class begins on the second day, July 14, at 8:00 am and adjourns at 4:00 pm.

The schedule is a combination of 60 minute and 30 minute sessions that encourage discussion, interaction with Extension instructors, and practical exercises in field situations.

Continuing Education

This clinic qualifies for 13 continuing education credits for Iowa Certified Crop Advisers, subject to approval.


What is FEEL?

FEEL is Iowa State University's 23-acre teaching and demonstration facility dedicated to providing a hands-on learning experience for crop production professionals. Demonstration plots are used to show management problems, solutions, and diagnostic challenges for corn and soybean production in Iowa. Modern, air conditioned classroom facilities support field demonstrations, all within walking distance.

Small classes offer each participant ample opportunity for discussion with instructors. Participants sharpen troubleshooting skills and evaluate management strategies through direct experience with actual crop problems.
