LENA — UW-Extension of Marinette, Florence, and Oconto Counties are sponsoring a workshop designed to help producers analyze crop budgets as they make crop rotation, crop insurance coverage, and management practice decisions at the Lena Town Hall at the intersection of Goatsville and Jagiello Roads, Dec. 8 at 9:45 a.m.
The producers and consultants attending this event will focus on costs of production and likely revenue for area crops, developing 2018 crop budgets for primary crops as well as analyze how changes in production practices such as weed control, fertilization, hybrid/cultivar selection or seeding rates may affect overall per acre profitability, due to effects on both costs and production. The analysis process will be facilitated by Scott Reuss, UW-Extension Crops/Soils Agent, but will be driven by the producers and agronomists in attendance.
This program is free and attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops to receive and work on the spreadsheets that will be utilized. Preregistration is appreciated, but not required. For more information and to register, persons may contact Reuss, 715-732-7510, 1-877-884-4408 or scott.reuss@ces.uwex.edu.
