Corn & Soybean Day now virtual


Staff report



The annual Northwest Ohio Corn & Soybean Day will now be held 100% virtual on Thursday, Jan. 21.

Due to sustained COVID-19 cases and a Red/Level 3 designation in Fulton County, the program will only be offered in a virtual (Zoom/webinar) format. To get the zoom link, registration is mandatory to participate.
