Iowa Corn will begin the New Year by offering a series of crop fairs hosted at local venues around the state. These crop fairs feature an array of speakers on topics that will help farmers navigate the progressive agriculture industry and allow learning opportunities to directly interact with local and state experts.

One of the first crop fairs of the season will be held in Iowa City, Iowa on January 28th at the Marriot Conference Center, 300 E 9th. St., Coralville, Iowa. Registration will open at 8:00 a.m. and a breakfast bar will be provided.

Featured speakers include:

  • Elyssa Mcfarland, Soil Health Partnership Project

With the evolving agriculture industry it is imperative to stay up-to-date and we invite all of Iowa’s corn farmers to come and attend a crop fair across the state, “said Iowa Corn District Field Manager Danielle Balvin.
