University of Wyoming Extension will host its 2023 Northwest Crop Symposium at the Park County Fairgrounds in Powell Wednesday, Jan. 25.
“The Northwest Crop Symposium is an annual event for producers to gather some new information and do a little networking for the future cropping year,” says Jeremiah Vardiman, an agriculture and natural resources extension educator based in Powell. “It’s another great year for presenters and topics.”
This year’s event focuses on alkaline soil management. Presentation topics include soil pH and nutrient availability; sugar beet cropping systems; how to use drain tiles; and management approaches for tight and sealed soils.
Speakers include local producer Chris Crosby; Bart Stevens, research agronomist at the Northern Plains Agricultural Research Laboratory; and UW Extension personnel.
The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by Friday, Jan. 20. To RSVP, call the Powell extension office at (307) 754-8836.
Registration will open at 8:30 a.m. in Heart Mountain Hall at the Park County Fairgrounds, and presentations will begin at 9 a.m. Lunch will take place at noon.
Sponsors of the symposium include Briess Malt & Ingredients Co., Big Horn Co-op, Sunlight Federal Credit Union and the UW Extension Pesticide Safety Education Program.
