Join us for the free Michigan State University Extension Field Crops Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Thursday, April 22, 2021, when Manni Singh, MSU Extension cropping systems specialist, will present his latest recommendations for planting corn and soybeans. The recommendations are based on recent research conducted in Michigan and will help field crop producers maximize yield potential while minimizing weather risk. Specific topics will include planting dates, planting rates and corn and soybean maturity selection. Singh will also answer questions from participants. MSU agriculture climatologist Jeff Andresen will provide the weekly weather update following Singh's presentation.
