MARIANNA, Fla. — The 2022 Panhandle Row Crop Short Course was held Thursday, March 3. Extension Specialists from Florida, Georgia, and Alabama spoke to attendees providing key production recommendations and tips for row crop farmers during a time when input costs are skyrocketing. Continuing education units (CEUs) were offered at the event for those with a restricted use pesticide license (Florida and Georgia), as well as for Certified Crop Advisors. This event also met the annual Dicamba Stewardship Training requirement for applicators spraying dicamba over top of cotton and soybeans.
