The Iowa State Extension along with Vision Ag is presenting a crop technology tour at a local mans farm. The event is at the Jeff Bermal farm near Keota on Tuesday evening August 3rd. Corn and soybean disease management will be featured. ISU Extension Field Agronomist Jim Fawcett says fungicides are becoming more widely used in corn and soybeans in Iowa and this year’s wet weather have some growers concerned about the potential for crop diseases to occur. Recent fungicide research results are also on the agenda. A free meal will be served at six, followed by the tour. The Bermal farm is located at the corner of W15 and G32 just west of Keota.
