Key learnings from 2019: A look back at the 2019 season
A difficult fall led to aggressive winter annual weeds in fields across the Midwest. On top of that, a wet spring allowed those weeds to thrive. Corn and soybean farmers learned just how important strong, flexible herbicide programs are when the weather doesn’t behave. Jeremy Leininger, a retailer from Illinois, will be on-site to describe his success with a corn herbicide this season on Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 10 a.m. to noon CT. Additional experts, including Aaron Smith, Product Manager, will be available throughout the show to discuss the importance of planning ahead for herbicide programs and why burndown is crucial for soybeans this fall.

Disaster preparedness: How to combat an unpredictable season
Unpredictable weather led to challenging planting and growing seasons. Now, fall purchasing decisions are right around the corner and it’s time to plan for a nitrogen application. Tyler Patton, Product Manager; Nate Wyss, Market Development Specialist; and Mike Koenigs, Market Development Specialist, will provide valuable advice for nutrient management when the weather is a wild card.

The most challenging foliar diseases that have impacted the 2019 growing season
Challenging spring conditions allowed pathogens to flourish this season. Nick Dame, Product Manager, and Mike Koenigs, Market Development Specialist, will highlight the diseases to watch for in 2019. The experts will also discuss best practices to scout fields for crop disease and explain how to evaluate infection risk based on field history.

Learn more about Enlist E3 soybeans: The emerging leader for weed control in soybeans
This is the time of year for farmers to begin thinking about seed selection for next year. They continue to battle tough weed issues and want more flexibility and modes of action in their herbicide options. Enlist Field Specialist Dan Puck will be available to explain why soybean varieties and corn hybrids with the Enlist trait are good choices for farmers who want more options for weed control. If 2019 has taught us anything, it’s that planning ahead for flexible herbicide programs is always a good idea.

Illinois retailer Jeremy Leininger will be available on Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 10 a.m. to noon CT, to talk about how TruChoice has enabled his customers to select better offerings on their farms. Brittany Loewen, TruChoice Experience Manager, and Nate Wyss, Market Development Specialist, will answer questions about how farmers can get the most out of the program.
