Jeff Ochampaugh - Agrilead

Precision seed care for early crop protection + Seed care industry update | Category: 7B,4

Presentation will provide a seed care industry update (emergence of new seed applied technologies • application considerations for new technologies) that will answer questions about new product types that have and are emerging in the market, and answer questions about new operational capabilities that will be required to offer the new technologies to customers. Presentation will also discuss delivering performance and value for your business and customers (understanding and communicating treatment plans • pre-season planning and operational readiness • post-season wrap up and stewardship practices) focusing on being prepared to do a good job treating seed which includes understanding the purpose of the products, being operationally ready to correctly execute treatment plans, and ultimately to deliver the most value possible for the business and grower customers.

Jeff Ochampaugh is a 1987 graduate of Kansas State University and grew up on a diversified dairy and farming operation in Rooks County Kansas. He is a 31-year veteran of the crop protection industry where his career experiences have included sales, marketing, and product and business development.

Jeff’s industry focus for more than a decade has been substantially upon seed care where Agrilead has developed innovative products and services aimed at elevating performance levels of crop protection delivered through seed care. Notable commercial developments for which Jeff has contributed to the industry includes the Novo Seed Care Prescription Management system, two patents involving seed rate calculation methods to deliver consistent levels of active ingredient on a per-seed-basis, patent pending IMPRESS to manage treated seed dust-off with wheat application, and most recently the dry seed finisher products including PIXY and patent pending PIZAZZ. Jeff has been recognized as a credible seed care industry representative cited within multiple trade publications and involved with many industry speaking engagements including seed care educational talks at the Illinois-Indiana Seed Conditioning Workshops, Idaho Eastern Oregon Seedsman Association, Iowa State Seed Treatment Workshops, and a speaker many times at the Seed Treatment Training Sessions held at the Kansas Ag Business Expo.

Carlos Campabadal Teran - KSU Grain Science & Industry

Understanding Grain Quality Management | Category: 7B

This presentation is focus on learning on why it is important to manage grain to reduce any potential quality loss during storage on a farm, elevator or processing facility. The goal is to cover all the key variables and external factors that affect grain during storage (including pests). Then explain all the different strategies and practices to maintain grain quality during storage to overcome and control any of the external factors that affect it. Among the practices that will be cover is application of insecticides and fumigation in grain bins.

Carlos is a faculty member of the Department of Grain Science and Industry that works at the International Grains Program Institute (IGP) as an extension specialist focusing on outreach in the areas of grain storage, quality and processing, U.S. grain grading and export systems, and feed manufacturing. He also leads the Stored Product Protection Research group and is part of the Feed Technology group of the Department of Grain Science and Industry where he is also serves as the State Extension Leader. He is very active in international development with several projects with USAID in Guatemala and Honduras for the Reduction of Postharvest Loss Innovation Lab, in Ethiopia for the Appropriate Scale Mechanization Consortium of the Sustainable Intensification Innovation Lab, and with USDA in Ghana for a Food for Progress project focusing the re-developing of the poultry industry. He was born and raised in Costa Rica, Central America.

Kelsey Anderson Onofre - KSU Plant Pathology

Seed treatment fungicides & insecticides for disease control | Category: 7B,4

This presentation will provide an overview of relevant diseases and insects of agronomic crops in Kansas for which seed treatments can be effective, decoding and selecting common seed treatment active ingredients, and factors that contribute to the success of a seed treatment application.

Dr. Kelsey Andersen Onofre, originally from New Jersey, obtained her a BA degree in Biology from Lafayette College, M.S. in Plant Pathology from Ohio State University, and PhD in Plant Pathology from the University of Florida. At Ohio State, Kelsey’s research focused on Fusarium head blight of wheat epidemiology and management. Her PhD research was focused on modeling epidemics in seed systems to inform landscape-scale intervention strategies, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. Prior to joining K-State, Kelsey worked in Monsanto’s (now Bayer’s) Soybean Breeding and Plant Health organizations as a Plant Health Project Lead. Kelsey is currently an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in the plant pathology department at Kansas State University with an 80% extension and 20% research appointment. Kelsey’s research is primarily focused on applied wheat and forage disease management, with an emphasis on integrated management of variety resistance and chemical control.
She is focused on tracking diseases of importance to Kansas producers and providing timely recommendations.
