The Northwest Ohio Corn and Soybean Day is a regional agronomy day coordinated by Ohio State University Extension-Fulton County. The event is held on the fourth Thursday of January at Founders Hall on the Sauder Village campus in Archbold, Ohio. It serves as a professional development day for farmers and agribusinesses in the Maumee Valley, Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. The educational sessions focus on improving best management practices for row crop production, farm management and pesticide applicator training. The event offers continuing education credits for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs), private and commercial applicators (Ohio and Michigan) and starting in 2015, the 3 hour Ohio Fertilizer Applicator Certification & Training (FACT) that fulfills Ohio Department of Agriculture’s new regulation (taking affect Sept 30, 2017) as required by Senate Bill 150.
Corn and Soybean Day would not be complete without the support of sponsorships and exhibitors from local agribusinesses representing ag lenders, commodity associations, crop insurance, farm equipment, grain handling, precision agriculture, retailers, and seed.
