Wheat Producers, This Seminar Is for You

Production specialist Phil Needham in Manhattan Jan. 28.

A seminar coming to Manhattan in late January is designed to help wheat producers make the most of their input costs, production technique and management.

Crop management expert Phil Needham will offer a high management wheat seminar at the Clarion Hotel in Manhattan, KS, on Jan. 28. Needham is the owner of Needham Ag, a crop consulting company that specializes in the application of innovative technology, flexible solutions, and strategic planning. After many years of delivering advanced agronomic services for other companies, Needham now travels the country on a mission to help producers increase their efficiency, yields, and profit margins. USDA data shows that in his home state of Kentucky, average crop yields doubled from 30 to 60 bushels per acre over a 15-year period, with some farmers seeing yields in excess of 100 bushels per acre.

The wheat management seminar runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pre-registration is recommended because space will be limited. The registration fee of $100 will include lunch, along with a professionally published glossy 72-page color wheat management guide to accompany the seminar.

Major sponsors for this educational session are Syngenta Seed Care and Agriculture Solutions, a division of Kansas Farm Bureau. Other sponsors include Oliver Manufacturing, WestBred LLC, AgriPro, Bratney Companies, and Shelbourne Reynolds.
