2019 NDSU Soybean Production meeting set

NDSU Extension
Farm Forum

Soybean producers will have an opportunity to learn about the latest research findings and how to manage soybeans at a North Dakota State University Extension Getting it Right in Soybean Production meeting scheduled for Lisbon N.D., in March.

The meeting will be held Friday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ransom County Fairgrounds Expo Center/West Wing, 612 7th Ave. W.

“Agricultural production is complex, and new soybean research information is generated annually,” says Hans Kandel, NDSU Extension agronomist. “With marketing challenges, tight margins and unknown future weather conditions, it is important for producers to gain as much production knowledge as possible. The soybean educational meeting features research-based information and can help producers with soybean production decisions for the 2019 growing season.”

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Factors to consider in selecting soybean fields, updated fertilizer recommendations, what factors contribute to iron deficiency chlorosis and questions about foliar application of micro nutrients.
  • Soybean variety selection; the latest information on various production issues, such as the importance of good root nodulation and water management; and the results of a four-year soybean production survey.
  • 2019 disease outlook, including an update on soybean cyst nematodes and information on how to manage soybean diseases.
  • Intensive soybean management, no-till and strip-till versus conventional-till methods, planting dates, plant populations and row spacing, special soybean inputs on the market and weed management issues.

The North Dakota Soybean Council is sponsoring the Getting it Right in Soybean Production program and lunch. The council oversees promotion, research and marketing programs funded by soybean checkoff dollars.

The meeting is free of charge. Preregistration is not necessary.
