Extension office plans seminars

Kansas State University Research and Extension will have an in-depth Sorghum School on Feb. 15 at the Burns Community Center. The one-day seminar will cover issues facing sorghum producers, including profit potential, weed control strategies, and planting, fertility, and insect and disease management.

The seminar is sponsored by the Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., and the program begins at 9:45 a.m. and will wrap up by mid-afternoon. Lunch is included.

There will also be a private pesticide school Feb. 27 at the Hillsboro City Building. The program will begin at 10 a.m. with review of the manual and record-keeping requirements. After lunch, participants will have an opportunity to take an exam to receive their license. The school will be valid for a new license or renewal.

The cost for lunch and materials is $10. Taking the exam is another $25 fee.

To register for either event, contact the Marion County Extension Office at (620) 382-2325 or e-mail
