Two one-day Scout Schools will be held in March, one on Wednesday, March 21, and a second on Saturday, March 24. Both schools will be held at the Scheman building at the Iowa State Center in Ames. Field Crop Scout School helps new scouts to understand principles and techniques of scouting. The sessions will cover growth and development of corn, soybean, and alfalfa; how to identify common weeds, diseases, and insects; general soil information; and discussion of common crop problems. Most sessions will include hands-on activities. Scouts will receive a notebook of publications and information to help them in the field.
