South Dakota soybean farmers are invited to attend the soy100 event, March 15 at the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Campus in Brookings. Register for this event online at www.sdsoybean.org/soy100.
The soy100 seminar focuses on the simple question, “What can farmers do to grow 100-bushel soybeans in South Dakota?” Attendees will hear from experts on soybean markets, weed resistance, soil health, water management and more.
“We are asking farmers to rise to the challenge of growing 100-bushel soybeans in South Dakota. The soy100 event is designed to help farmers think about innovative management practices that could help significantly increase their soybean yields,” said Marc Reiner, farmer from Tripp and South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council chairman.
This year’s featured speaker is Ed Usset, grain marketing specialist from the University of Minnesota. View the complete agenda here.
