K-State Sorghum Schools scheduled for early February 2019


A series of three K-State Sorghum Production Schools will be offered in early February to provide in-depth training targeted for sorghum producers and key-stakeholders. The schools are sponsored by Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission.



The schools will cover a number of issues facing sorghum growers: risk management, marketing opportunities, weed control, crop production practices, nutrient and soil fertility, and insect management.

The final dates and locations have been set focusing with Schools across the state. More details on speakers, topics, and specific locations will be in an upcoming eUpdate. Stay tuned!
