Getting It Right in Soybean Production update set for Dec. 20

NDSU Extension
The Getting It Right annual crop production conferences feature the latest research-based production information presented by NDSU specialists.

Soybean producers, crop consultants and others interested in soybean production management updates should plan to attend the Getting It Right in Soybean Production conference on Tuesday, Dec. 20, starting at 8:30 a.m. CST and ending at noon. This online-only conference will be hosted on Zoom.

The conference will be conducted by North Dakota State University Extension and is supported by the North Dakota Soybean Council. The conference is free to attend, but pre-registration is required at ndsu.ag/GettingItRight. All who preregister will receive emailed instructions on how to participate.

“We just completed a challenging soybean growing season, and looking to the 2023 season, soybean crop management will depend on many timely decisions producers need to make,” says Hans Kandel, NDSU Extension agronomist for broadleaf crops. “Many researchers at NDSU conduct annual soybean research and new production information is generated. It is important for producers and consultants to gain as much practical and new knowledge as possible.”

“This soybean educational event will provide tips and suggestions that can help producers with soybean production decisions for the 2023 growing season,” says Greg Endres, NDSU Extension cropping systems specialist and co-organizer of the event.

Topics that will be covered are variety selection, seed treatments, planting date, row spacing and late-maturing varieties, cover crops in the soybean rotation, nutrient management, weed control, soybean insect and disease updates, and marketing.

Attendees also will receive a list of several pertinent Extension soybean production resources as reference materials that are supplemental to the presentations. The presentations will be recorded and archived. Certified crop adviser continuing education credits will be available for meeting participants.

Additional virtual Getting it Right events are scheduled for:

  • Dec. 21 – Dry bean production
  • Jan. 24 – Corn production
  • March 21 – Sunflower production

Registration for all events is available at ndsu.ag/GettingItRight.
