Today marked the start of this week’s Crop Diagnostic School at Outlook.

With all of the rain the area has seen this week organizers have moved the 3 day event indoors.

Agronomists, producers, industry and retail reps are taking part to refresh and  improve their crop scouting and agronomic knowledge.

Participants are improving their skills when it comes to Identifying and Scouting for Insects and Disease, Weed Identification, Herbicide Injury Symptoms and Application, Fertility, Soils and Nodulation and how to use Imagery as a Diagnostic tool.

Regional Crop Management Specialist Shannon Chant with Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Agriculture says while normally they would conduct the event in a field with various stations set up, this week because of the rainfall they are holding it inside.
