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.

Attending the complete program will qualify for Ohio Fertilizer Re-certification (a.k.a. Category 15, private or commercial). The cost for the program with credits is $10 per person. Unfortunately, there will be no Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) or Ohio or Michigan Pesticide Recertification credits offered in the virtual format.

Topics and speakers for the day include:

• Soil Health Mindset – Adopting Practices and Measuring Success, Abbey Wick, North Dakota State University Extension Soil Health Specialist

• WEATHER you like it or not: Early 2021 Outlook, Aaron Wilson, OSU Climate Office
