The Dodge City agAcademy invited industry leaders to come and talk about their area of expertise.  Mark Reiman kicked off the morning by lecturing on local research efforts to solve local problems. Reiman informed the area growers of research taking place to shed more light on region specific issues, such as weed resistance, hybrid selection and water management. In addition, Jeff Tichota gave growers the latest information on Genuity® DroughtGard™ Hybrids. Water availability is limited for much of Kansas, and Tichota explained to the attendees t​he important benefits to come through DroughtGard™ Hybrid selection. Tichota was followed by Brian Olson’s segment over the Roundup Ready® Xtend™ Crop System and Sprayer Application Technology. Olson explained how the system is intended to provide farmers with more consistent, flexible control of weeds, especially tough-to-manage and glyphosate-resistant weeds, and to help maximize crop yield potential. Olson also guided the local farmers through the safest and most efficient spray application systems and procedures.
