Topics for the 2011 Corn & Soybean Classics
On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to announce the program for the 2011 University of Illinois Corn & Soybean Classics. Our upcoming meetings will mark the 14th iteration of the Classics, an educational program that continues the tradition of providing the most current and timely information related to crop production and pest management. All involved have worked diligently to ensure that the 2011 Classics continue to meet the needs of our clientele.
The upcoming program, with a format that emphasizes crop production, pest management, economics, and the interactions among them, will begin at 9:00 and conclude by 3:30. Market updates will be provided throughout the day, and communication among speakers and participants is encouraged. Question-and-answer sessions are scheduled for both morning and afternoon. Lunch and a proceedings booklet with synopses of all presentations are provided to each registrant.
