In Collaboration with DuPont, Iowa Energy Center & ISU Extension & Outreach

January 6, 2014

Ogden, Iowa

New opportunities exist for harvesting corn stover around the Nevada, Iowa region to support the biomass feedstock needs of a cellulosic ethanol plant. Stover harvesting can impact economic, agronomic, and water quality production factors. This meeting will address many of the positives and negatives of stover harvesting and discuss how stover harvesting can be managed within corn production in central Iowa.

This meeting will be of value to crop producers, land owners, crop consultants, agronomists, service providers, and others with interest in stover harvest and its removal from farm fields. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with industry representatives during lunch and after the meeting adjourns. Lunch is sponsored by DuPont and is provided at no cost to the participants. Pre-registration is required.
