Here’s a chance to see a few farms with strong fertility programs using some of our products including Myco Seed Treat®, SP-1™, starters, foliar applications, in-furrow, and side-dress. At AgriEnergy Resources, we believe there’s still another opportunity to turn a good crop into a great crop. Join us from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 25 on several farm tours in Ohio, hosted by John Daniel Schlabach of JDS Seeds. We will visit 5 farms and learn what others have done to manage their crops. One of our agronomists, Gary Campbell, will be there all day discussing how late-season foliars can complement a strong early season program. He will be joining speakers John Daniel Schlabach, Reggie Destree, Kevin Fowler of Fowler Seed Marketing, and participating farmers. it should be a great day to get your questions answered while learning from some of the best.
