The Georgia Corn Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Corn Team are sponsoring the 2021 Corn Short Course virtually on December 10, 2020.
The virtual course will start at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at noon. Recertification credits for pesticide applicators and CCA will be available pending approval. There is no charge for the event, but attendees will need to pre-register below.
The purpose of the Corn Short Course is to provide with information helpful to making informed decisions for the 2021 growing season. The sponsors’ goal is to provide an informative session for corn growers to hear educational presentations on current UGA research trials while also providing the opportunity to pose questions to the researchers and express opinions and concerns pertinent to corn production.
