Reminder: 2002 University of Illinois Corn and Soybean Classic Meetings

December 7, 2001
University of Illinois Extension and research specialists will conduct the University of Illinois Corn and Soybean Classic meetings for the fifth consecutive year in 2002. These classics have become entrenched over the past four years, and attendance continues to increase. The speakers address critical issues in both crop production and crop protection, and we allow plenty of time for questions and answers.
