WORTHINGTON — Producers may still register for the “Strategic Farming: Let’s Talk Crops” program, which offers virtual programming from 8:30 to 9 a.m. each Wednesday from Jan. 6 through March 24.

The sessions cover key crop production issues facing Minnesota corn and soybean farmers. Sessions are conducted via Zoom, which can be accessed via a computer, phone or other mobile device.

The free, online sessions are informal and open to all interested. Each session begins with a brief presentation by discussion leaders, followed by discussion, framed around farmer/participant questions on the topic.
