REMINDERS: SIGN PETITIONS, ATTEND A YIELD SEMINAR, AND MORE
It’s winter, your time is more available, and you’re considering your planting plans for next year. It’s the perfect time to engage and make 2017 the best year yet!
Do your part to protect the ability to use chlorpyrifos, one of the most widely used active ingredients in insecticides in the world. The EPA could revoke all tolerances and cancel all registrations for chlorpyrifos on March 31 – just because two activist groups filed a petition in 2007. Sign this petition (LINK NOW CLOSED) asking the US EPA to retain the current tolerances for corn and soybeans and the continued registration and availability of use of the chlorpyrifos-containing products you need.
And then, don’t forget to sign up to attend the free, “Maximizing Yield while Optimizing ROI: Randy Dowdy Shows How,” seminar. Randy Dowdy, U.S. record yield breaker for corn and soybeans, is leading the free seminar in Bloomington, Ill., Jan. 20, hosted by the Illinois Soybean Association checkoff program and sponsored by the Illinois Corn Growers Association, FS InVISION™ and FS HiSOY®. The seminar will be held at the Parke Regency Hotel & Conference Center in Bloomington and will run from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., with lunch included. (SEMINAR REGISTRATION CLOSED AS OF 1/16/17 4:25 p.m. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!)
