The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Field Agronomist, Paul Kassel presented to the group at Lorna Bruns-Kahl and Linda Ecker’s farm near Alta. The group walked through the field and asked any questions they had about the crops.

Topics discussed included stages, health and potential threats to crops, as well as sampling techniques. This was a great learning experience for everyone in attendance.
