Sheldon, Iowa — Iowa State University Extension is hosting a crop seminar in Sheldon on Thursday, Jan. 3. We talked to Joel De Jong, Crop Field Specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach recently, and he says it’s called the Crop Advantage Series.

De Jong says the venue is Northwest Iowa Community College, in Sheldon. He says it’s a chance for farmers to network and learn a great deal that could be helpful to them in their operation in the coming year.

De Jong says you may have heard of the second speaker. He’s quoted in several news stories about Iowa’s weather and climate, and is an expert on the drought.

De Jong says in the afternoon they have three 50-minute time slots and several topics to choose from.

Plus, he says there are a couple of bonuses.

If you’re interested in coming to the seminar, you can contact your local extension office or go to www.cropadvantage.org. The base cost is $35, plus any certifications you need, plus if you wait until after Thursday, December 27th to register, the price goes up to $45.
