'Corn University' offers insight on hybrids
Some of the issues include the question of whether drought-resistant hybrids will produce protection on drought as well as typical growing conditions and whether drought-tolerant hybrids can handle higher plant populations better than traditional hybrids, Thomison said.
The presentations will also focus on other traditional approaches growers can use to manage drought stress, including switching to a corn-soybean rotation for those growers who experienced low yields because of continuous corn production. Other issues include growers choosing to cut their seeding rates to not push growing higher populations because of increased risk.
The Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference is at the McIntosh Center of Ohio Northern University in Ada. The full schedule and registration information is at http://ctc.osu.edu . Participants can register online or by mail. Registration for the full conference is $85 (or $65 for one day) if received by Feb. 27.
Information is also available in county offices of OSU Extension.
The conference is sponsored by OSU Extension, OARDC, Northwest Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Ohio No-Till Council.
