Free Canola U Event Comes To Enid February 28thWed, 15 Feb 2012 16:30:20 CST
It's time to register for the free Canola U event to be held in Enid, Oklahoma, February 28th.
Attendees at the two Canola U events in 2011 took home increased knowledge and confidence about making their farm operations more profitable by rotating winter canola with winter wheat according to surveys conducted after the events.
Southern Plains farmers who missed last year’s bandwagon have a chance to catch up with the third Canola U event to be held February 28th at the Cherokee Strip Conference Center in Enid, Oklahoma.
Attendees at the first two events are welcome as well with this month’s Canola U featuring a completely new line up of topics and information.
While the first two events were geared solely to new producers, the upcoming event will also have advanced classes for those who want to take their production to a higher level.
The 2012 Canola U conference will feature topics taught by experienced farmers, academic advisors and industry leaders in a classroom setting:
--Crop Insurance Programs Favoring Winter Canola
--An Agricultural Banker and Lender's Perspective on Winter Canola
--Basic and Advanced Courses on Winter Canola Agronomics
--Lessons Learned from the Northern Canola Belt
--Making Winter Canola Work in No-Till and Minimum-Till Systems
--Tap Into and Learn From Other Experienced Farmers, Academics and Industry Experts
Farmers who attended Canola U events in 2011 were surveyed about the program and its effectiveness. Eighty-eight percent said they were very satisfied or satisfied with the event; 97 percent said 97 percent said they would recommend a Canola U event to other farmers; and 99 percent said they would attend or maybe attend a similar Canola U event in the future.
Canola U is sponsored by DEKALB and High Plains Journal. In addition to classroom instruction, lunch is also provided. There is no charge for the event, but reservations must be made by calling 855-422-6652 or registering online at www.canolau.com.
