Guest column by Brandon Wipf, farmer from Huron and SDSA Director.
Today, hundreds of South Dakota soybean growers double as citizen scientists, testing various products and farming practices in their own fields with the intent to increase yields, ward off pests and disease and improve overall profits.
South Dakota soybean growers are encouraged to apply for the 2018 See For Yourself export tour to Mexico. The experience is hosted by the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (SDSRPC). Ten farmers will be selected to travel to Mexico, February 18-24, 2018, where they will experience first-hand how the South Dakota soybean checkoff is working for them in the country.
