Bill Golden on the lineup for February K-State Sorghum Production Schools

Sorghum producers are often faced with issues including weed and insect control, crop production practices, soil fertility, nutrient management, irrigation and risk management. It’s how the producer tends to the issues that often becomes the most important part.
