“Nebraska Soybean Board looks forward to another road trip across Nebraska to provide helpful information and demonstrations to our producers to utilize on their farms. It’s an excellent way to provide unbiased research that hopefully impacts their bottom line,” said Scott Ritzman, Nebraska Soybean Board executive director.
University of Nebraska-Lincoln agronomists, plant disease experts and insect specialists will be available to address questions. Participants can bring unknown crop problems for complimentary identification.
