DECATUR, Ill. (DTN) -- The farm winter meeting circuit used to be a good place to well ... meet. The good news is there's a lot of great virtual information being distributed during these pandemic times, and you won't burn any fuel getting to the sessions.
The unfortunate reality is you'll have to supply your own coffee and donuts. Let's not even talk about missing the lunch that typically follows such events.
Corteva Agriscience has announced a variety of free educational and training opportunities for the Enlist weed system for the 2021 growing season. Keep in mind that each trait technology has specific label requirements and some states have specific requirements.
Beginning Jan. 25, 2021, A Step Ahead webinars, led by Enlist field specialists, will feature application training sessions. The hour-long sessions will cover how to achieve effective weed control on acres of Enlist E3 soybeans, tank-mixing with Enlist herbicides, field planning scenarios and spray requirements. Information will be split into northern and southern geographies.
