The Kentucky Agricultural Training School will host its last workshop of the 2019 growing season from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CDT Sept. 26 at the University of Kentucky Research and Education Center in Princeton.

The daylong, hands-on clinic is ideal for corn and soybean producers and crop consultants and is part of the UK Grain and Forage Center of Excellence’s mission to provide producers with real-time educational information at critical times during the growing season.

UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment specialists will discuss early fall agronomic activities and post-harvest considerations. Topics include transitioning to post-harvest management, herbicide carryover into cover crops and wheat, assessing soil nutrient status for wheat following corn, using fall cover crops for grazing and conserved forages, and identification and management of insects in stored grain.

Class size is limited to 30 people, and registration is required. To register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kats-late-season-tickets-70541476455. This clinic will be held rain or shine, so participants will need to dress accordingly. Lunch is provided.

Workshop organizers have applied for continuing education units for pesticide applications and certified crop advisers. The UKREC Farm is located at 1205 Hopkinsville Street in Princeton.
