2020 Western Crop and Pest Management School set for Dickinson

The NDSU Extension 2020 Western Crop and Pest Management School is set for March 10th and 11th at the Roosevelt Grand Dakota Hotel in Dickinson. The workshop is designed to help crop advisers, farmers, and other agricultural decision makers sharpen their skills and obtain the latest information on integrated pest management and crop production.

One of the many presenters is Dr. Chad Godsey. Dr. Godsey earned his PhD in Agronomy/Soil Fertility from Kansas State University and spent time working as a Cropping System Specialist at Oklahoma State University. After working in Oklahoma he started Godsey Precision Ag to help producers increase their profitability and is now based in Colorado. Dr. Godsey has done work on soil acidity in the past and will be bringing his perspective and expertise to help us address our low pH problem in southwestern North Dakota.

John Mortenson from the ND Department of Ag will be discussing guidelines and an overview of hemp production in North Dakota. NDSU specialists in agronomy, entomology, plant diseases, soils, and weed science will present on  a range of highly relevant issues, including a discussion session on sprouted grain, abandoned crops and residue management with Dr. Joel Ransom and Ryan Buetow.

The registration fee is $150, which includes lunches, refreshments, and educational materials. Organizers recommend that anyone who wants to attend this program should register early to reserve a place. To register online, go to https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/extplantpath/events.
