OSU Winter Crop School Slated Dec. 10-11
Oklahoma certified crop advisors, agricultural retailers, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension professionals and others with an interest in agriculture are invited to take part in the OSU Winter Crop School.

Slated Dec. 10-11 at the Wes Watkins Center on the OSU campus in Stillwater, the Winter Crop School is designed to provide updates to crop advisors regarding current research and recent advances in agronomy, said Jeff Edwards, OSU Cooperative Extension small grains specialist.

"The objective of the school is to provide participants with knowledge and tools they can implement on Oklahoma farms," Edwards said. "The content will be a bit more technical than what they may receive in a typical Extension meeting. As an added bonus, there will be 12 hours of Certified Crop Advisor continuing education credits offered."

Registration is $125 for both days of the school or $75 for a single day. Online registration is available at http://orangehub.okstate.edu. Click on Agricultural Conference Services and then select OSU Winter Crop School. Registration forms are available online at www.wheat.okstate.edu and forms and payment should be mailed to Ag Conferences, 430 Student Union, Stillwater, OK 74078. Online and mail-in registrations are due by Dec. 3. There is a $20 late registration fee.

Edwards said one of the highlights of this year's program is a presentation on land application of drilling mud. This session will be presented by Chad Penn, assistant profession in the plant and soil sciences department, and Shannon Ferrell, assistant professor of agricultural law.

"The recent oil boom has created opportunities for Oklahoma farmers to receive compensation for application of drilling byproducts to their land," he said. "However, farmers and ranchers need to be aware of and consider any possible long-term impacts to agronomic productivity resulting from application of these products."

Other topics to be covered include a weed control update, soil and water conservation and wheat growth regulators.

Winter Crop School participants also will have an opportunity to network with fellow agricultural professionals at a social on the first evening of the event. In addition, there will be a silent auction that will benefit the Oklahoma Certified Crop Advisor program.

For more information about the OSU Winter Crop School, please contact Edwards at 405-744-9617 or via email at jeff.edwards@okstate.edu.
