The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour will be visiting fields in Minnesota August 20 as part of its overall 2015 tour program. The tour covers seven Corn Belt states and provides valuable late-season information, including corn yield estimates and soybean condition summaries at the state and regional level. The tour will also provide important insights into management practices for 2015, a year with high variability in weather conditions and pest pressure across the Corn Belt.
During this year’s tour, DuPont Pioneer will be opening its doors in the afternoon for further information sharing with growers, and will have spokesmen available for comment on crop conditions and agronomic issues. The Minnesota event will take place Thursday, August 20, 2015, and will feature a live broadcast of Market Rally by Chip Flory.
The event will take place at:
SGI Ag Services
528 1st Ave SE
Grand Meadow, MN 55936
