PRINCETON, KY.
   The Kentucky Agricultural Training School will host a late season workshop from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. CDT Aug. 22 at the University of Kentucky Research and Education Center in Princeton.
   The daylong, hands-on clinic is ideal for corn and soybean producers and crop consultants and is part of the UK Grain and Forage Center of Excellence’s mission to provide producers with real-time educational information at critical times during the growing season.
   UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment specialists will discuss late-season agronomic activities and harvest preparation.     Topics include corn and soybean disease management, combine adjustments and operation to reduce harvest loss, fundamentals of setting a combine and forages as a cover crop.
   Class size is limited to 30 people, and registration is required. To register, visit https://www.eve ntbrite.com/e/aug-22-kats-workshop-tickets-655589275 17. This clinic will be held rain or shine, so participants will need to dress accordingly. Lunch is provided.
Workshop organizers have applied for continuing education units for pesticide applicators and certified crop advisers. The UKREC Farm is located at 1205 Hopkinsville Street in Princeton.
   For additional information or help with registration, contact Lori Rogers, KATS coordinator, at 859-562-1317 or lori.rogers@uky.edu.
   The schools are funded in part by the Kentucky Small Grain Growers Association and a state integrated pest management grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
