Following reports of dicamba-related damage to soybean crops, the South Dakota Soybean Association (SDSA) encourages farmers who believe they are experiencing crop damage from dicamba to submit a survey to the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA).
The South Dakota Soybean Association (SDSA) welcomed news this morning out of Brussels that the European Union (EU) has approved three outstanding biotech soybean traits for import and processing. The approved traits include the Xtend dicamba-tolerant soybean and Vistive Gold high oleic soybean products from Monsanto, and the Balance GT FG72 soybean from Bayer CropScience.
Here at SD Soybean, we know it’s officially fall when our news feeds fill up with harvest photos, and we’d love hear from you about how Harvest 15 is progressing in your areas. Tag us on Facebook (SD Soybean), Tweet us on Twitter @sdsoybean, and use the hashtag #Harvest15 in your posts to be featured on our social media. Happy Harvesting!
South Dakota soybean farmers have built long-term relationships with our overseas customers who count on a quality and reliable product. Over 60% of South Dakota’s soybeans are exported overseas, and proper on-farm grain storage is the first step in ensuring this quality. South Dakota soybean farmers work very hard to produce a quality crop that turns into an abundant supply of food, feed and fuel. Maintaining the value of that crop doesn’t stop when it’s harvested and in the storage bin.
