“So How Was Corn College, Besides Hot?”

by Jul 27, 2012Ag Leader

This is a direct quote from a friend of mine when I told her that I had just spent July 16-19 at Farm Journal Corn College in Heyworth, IL. Despite record-breaking temperatures and drought like conditions, both the one-day and two-day grower sessions were sold out!

Myself, along with Luke James, Joe Brown, Matt Wolfe and Will Cannon, were proud to represent Ag Leader at this 4-day event hosted by Farm Journal. Featuring independent field agronomist Ken Ferrie's systems approach to farming, the method he employs in the Farm Journal test plots, growers traveled from all of the country to join this exclusive event.

As an event sponsor, Ag Leader had the opportunity to introduce its latest product to Corn College attendees: Hydraulic Down Force.
