Alabama producers will be able to brush up on best management practices and prepare for the upcoming growing seasons during the 2022 Alabama Row Crops Short Course. It will be held January 18-19 at the Embassy Suites in Montgomery.

The Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Auburn University College of Agriculture’s department of crop, soil and environmental sciences are partnering to bring producers an all-encompassing event geared toward understanding the current market conditions, improving farm practices and increasing profitability.

Alabama Extension soil scientist Audrey Gamble said faculty and agents are once again working across production lines to equip farmers with relevant research and information. She said the course will be beneficial for farmers who focus on one or two crops, as well as those with diverse row crop operations. Also, continuing education units and pesticide points will be available for all attendees.

The course will include presenters from various institutions speaking on the following topics:

  • Weed management in small grains
  • Fall armyworms
  • Corn and soybean management recommendations
  • Peanut production and disease management
  • Cotton production and pest management
  • Carbon markets
  • Climate outlook
  • Variety selection
  • Input cost management

There is no registration fee before January 7, but after that date, the cost of registration will be $40. An event agenda, hotel reservation information, a complete list of speakers and topics and the registration link are all available on the 2022 Alabama Row Crops Short Course webpage.
