Chromatin Sponsors Kansas Sorghum Production Schools in 2014

Dec 20th, 2013

A series of four Kansas State University Sorghum Production Schools will be offered in early February of 2014 to provide in-depth training targeted for sorghum producers and key-stakeholders. The schools will be held at four locations around the state. The Schools will be sponsored by Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission (KGSC), and supported by Chromatin, Inc., the United Sorghum Checkoff, KFRM radio station, and Bayer CropScience.

The one-day schools will cover a number of issues facing sorghum growers: sorghum for risk management; irrigation management; weed control strategies; crop production practices, nutrient and soil fertility, insect, and disease management.

The final dates and specific locations have been set. This year the focus of the Sorghum Schools will be in Western, North central, South central, and east central Kansas.
