The annual Northwest Ohio Corn & Soybean Day will now be held 100% virtual on Jan. 21. Due to sustained COVID-19 cases and a red/level 3 designation in the county, the program will only be offered in a virtual (zoom/webinar) format. To get the zoom link, registration is mandatory to participate. During registration, you will have the option to sign up for either the morning 8-11 a.m. session or the evening 6-9 p.m. session.
