Genuity Corn-On-Corn Clinics to Offer Agronomic Recommendations for Managing Continuous Corn Production


Continuous corn production presents special agronomic challenges for farmers. Monsanto is sponsoring a series of four Genuity® Corn-on-Corn Clinics this summer in Nebraska, Iowa and Colorado to provide farmers with management recommendations from academics and other industry experts for maximizing yield potential associated with corn-on-corn acres.

Presentations will focus on insect, fertility, disease and residue management.  Each clinic will also feature a panel of farmers discussing their experiences with continuous corn production.

All four events will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., are open to farmers at no charge and will include lunch.  Farmer attendees at each event will be entered into a drawing to win a $500 Cabela’s gift certificate.

Farmers can obtain additional information and register online at   The events schedule includes:

  • July 25 – Divots Conference Center, Norfolk, Neb.
  • July 31 – Clay County Regional Events Center, Spencer, Iowa
  • Aug. 1 – Knights of Columbus, Cascade, Iowa
  • Aug. 7 – the Barn at Old Town Museum, Burlington, Colo. 

Continuous corn production is often accompanied by high corn rootworm pressure, and a strong focus on integrated pest management practices helps to manage high corn rootworm populations. Monsanto’s Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blend is a single bag refuge management technology that provides multiple ways to protect against above- and below- ground insects in the Corn-Growing Area, including full-season control of corn rootworm.
