Total Acre Announces Its Grower Clinic


World-record-holding crop farmers Randy Dowdy and David Hula will share cutting-edge crop production insights at the annual Total Acre Grower Clinic, Jan. 23-26, in Phoenix. During the clinic, expert panelists, top researchers, and live field demonstrations will offer production measures Total Acre members can implement on their own farms, all presented under the warmth of Arizona’s mid-winter sunshine.

“This clinic is a tangible benefit for our Total Acre farmers to come together to learn how they can increase ROI by optimizing yields as they celebrate achievements of the past growing season and set their sights on 2023,” said Hula, who holds the world record corn yield of 616 bushels per acre. “While our focus is on learning from experts, it’s also an opportunity for elite growers from different states and regions to network and come together as a singular community and to learn from each other.”

The clinic offers a comprehensive mix of in-the-field demonstrations and interactive seminars designed for optimizing production and revenue for every acre. It will be a gathering of 500 of the world’s best crop growers, including Hula and Dowdy, for three full days of intensive learning, engagement and fellowship.

“There are so many ways to unlock the true productivity of your farm,” said Dowdy, who holds the world record soybean yield of 190.23 bushels per acre. “I encourage farmers to not be a ‘next year’ farmer. Stop hoping and start knowing. By being proactive, we can increase our returns on investment by working with and caring for our soil to optimize yields on every acre.”

Registration for the event is included in Total Acre membership. In addition to corn, soybean and small grains farmers from 31 different states sharing production insights, the meeting also will feature results of 250 farmer-conducted field trials for crop inputs from nine different companies.

General sessions will include topics such as:

Improving returns through grain marketing

Plant health and tissue optimization

The latest equipment technology

Higher yields by unlocking the soil’s full potential

And growing a farm’s return on investment.

Expert Panelists: Researchers and farmers from 31 different states will share results from more than 250 field trials.

There will also be break-out sessions on topics such as small-grains production, strip-tilling and intercropping, as well as exhibits of state-of-the-art crop products, production software and field equipment.

The clinic will take place at the Harrah’s Ak-Chin facility near Phoenix, with nearby field trials and demonstration plots made possible through cooperation by the Ak-Chin Native American community. To participate in the clinic, farmers are invited to become members of the Total Acre Interest List and join the program.
