THREE STORED GRAIN WORKSHOPS OFFERED IN MAY
The Alabama Cooperative Extension System is offering a series of free workshops to help farmers keep insects out of on-farm stored wheat.
Hands-on exercises will show farmers how to calibrate sprayers used to apply insecticides on the grain, how to look for insects in grain and how pockets of wet grain can lead to insect hot spots.
A panel of farmers will discuss tips for effective on-farm grain storage. Grain bin safety, moisture management and choosing the right insecticides will also be discussed.
Attendees will receive extensive handouts, other educational materials and a set of insect traps. Certified Crop Advisor and Pesticide Applicator CEU’s will be available.
Workshops, funded by the Alabama Wheat and Feed Grain Checkoff Committee, are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Workshop dates and contact information are below:
