NDSU Extension Sets Central Dakota Ag Day

The daylong program will cover numerous cropping and livestock topics.

Soybean trade and marketing strategies, soil health, livestock marketing, cattle feed concerns and cover crops are among the topics that will be covered during North State University Extension’s Central Dakota Ag Day program.

The workshop will be held Dec. 13 at the NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center. The event will start at 9 a.m. with doughnuts and coffee and conclude at 3:30 p.m. The event includes lunch, which the North Dakota Soybean Council and North Dakota Corn Council are sponsoring.

Other topics that will be covered include:

  • Update on Palmer amaranth, a very invasive, difficult-to-control weed found for the first time in North Dakota in 2018
  • Specialty crop marketing outlook
  • Crop budget comparisons
  • New crop fertilizer recommendations
  • Calculating the profitability of buying replacement heifers
  • Sorghum sudangrass for fall grazing or haying
  • Ergot in wheat and Goss’s wilt in corn
  • Optimizing fungicide application methods for controlling white mold in dry beans

The Agricultural Improvement Associations and NDSU Extension offices in Eddy, Foster, Griggs, Sheridan, Stutsman and Wells counties, and the Carrington Research Extension Center are sponsoring the workshop. The center is about 3.5 miles north of Carrington on U.S. Highway 281.
