Local farmers will get the chance to hear some new ideas for managing and protecting their crops next week. Keokuk County Extension Director Gary Bickmeier says the New Crop Technology Field Day on July 28 caters to all those interested in agriculture and keeping Iowas crops healthy. Bickmeier says experts from Iowa State University and Dow Chemical come and discuss things like soybean aphids, protecting against excess moisture, and helping keep nutrients in the soil. He says one of the biggest problem he sees in agriculture this year has been the lack of nitrogen in the soil.
