BOZEMAN --  A two-day workshop covering a variety of topics related to crop production in Montana will be held Jan. 2 and 3 at the Burns Technology Center at Montana State University.

Guest speaker at the 2014 Montana State University Crop and Pest Management School will be Daren Mueller from Iowa State University, editor of the book “Fungicides for Field Crops,” published in 2012 by the American Phytopathological Society.

The Crop and Pest Management School will also include a panel discussion on corn as a potential crop in Montana. Eleven MSU staff members from four departments will cover topics in weed, disease, insect and nutrient management, as well as pollinator safety.

Since enrollment is limited, those who wish to attend the school are encouraged to register now. The $195 fee will provide workshop supplies, morning and afternoon refreshments, parking and the traditional pizza dinner at Colombo’s.  

Crop consulting (CCA), private pesticide applicator and commercial/government pesticide applicator credits will be available.
