The annual Northwest Ohio Corn & Soybean Day will be held in a 100% virtual format on January 21, 2021. The program was originally planned to be held in 3 in-person sessions with a virtual option. However, due to sustained Covid19 cases and a red/level 3 designation in the county, the program will only be offered in a virtual (webinar) format. Pre-registration is mandatory as you must have the Zoom link to participate. During registration, you will have the option to sign up for either the morning 8:00-11:00 am session or the evening 6:00-9:00 pm session. Attending the complete program will qualify for Ohio Fertilizer Re-certification (a.k.a. Category 15, private or commercial). This cost for the program with credits is $10 per person. Unfortunately, there will be no Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) or Ohio or Michigan Pesticide Re-certification credits offered in the virtual format.
