2003 AG PROFESSIONAL FIELD SCHOOL

Great Learning Opportunity

Looking for an opportunity to sharpen your crop diagnostic and pest management skills? Do you enjoy working in small groups to solve real-life crop production problems? The University of Minnesota’s Ag Prof. Field School offers an opportunity to sharpen and test your professional skills while working in small groups. Several acres of specially designed plots have been created for the Ag Professional Field School. Hands-on learning experience will occur in four disciplines: weed ID and weed management, soil properties and crop mgmt., crop diagnostics, and entomology (current pest problems- soybean aphid, bean leaf beetle, corn rootworm/ transgenics). Students will find the exercises challenging and enjoyable, plus practical take home knowledge that can be immediately applied. People working in the ag industry as agronomists, sales (seed/chemical), consulting, dealer/farm managers, summer scouts, Ext. Educators, and ag. agencies will find the school very applicable to their work.
