Virtual Field Days Provide Farmers With In-Season Agronomic Advice

Downers Grove, IL (August 3, 2020) - Farmers are invited to join the Golden Harvest Virtual Field Days taking place in August and September. The events will provide farmers with in-season agronomic management recommendations to finish the 2020 corn and soybean growing season strong.

Hosted by local Golden Harvest agronomists, the Golden Harvest Virtual Field Days will be hourlong, virtual meetings Rooted in Genetics, Agronomy & ServiceSM. Attendees will hear about agronomic topics, such as nutrient management and fungicide applications, as well as new Golden Harvest® corn and soybean products for the year ahead. The meetings will be interactive with opportunities for farmers to ask agronomists questions and receive real-time, actionable guidance.

"It is vital for farmers to have access to timely agronomic advice throughout the season," said Andy Heggenstaller, Syngenta Seeds head of agronomy. "While gatherings this year may look different from previous seasons, virtual meetings provide an opportunity to connect farmers with their local agronomists and deliver critical information to maximize yield potential."

The events will be customized for local regions spanning the Corn Belt and offered at both morning and evening times to provide options for farmers to join at their convenience. Following a series of local events, the Golden Harvest Virtual Field Days will culminate with a national event. Media are welcome to register for the virtual events.
