July 20, 2011
“Growing Nebraska's Future" is the theme of the 13th annual Soybean Management Field Days Aug. 16-19. The event will focus on staying competitive in a global marketplace, increasing profits and meeting the world's growing food and energy needs starting in Nebraska.
The field days are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board in partnership with UNL Extension and funded with soybean checkoff dollars. Checkoff funds are directed by the United Soybean Board to promote effective, efficient, farmer-driven programs.
The field days will offer producers unbiased, research-based information to improve their soybean profitability.
The event consists of four stops across the state, each with replicated research/ demonstration plots, lunch, and time for questions. Producers can obtain ideas and insight about the challenges they face in producing a quality crop at a profitable price in today's global economy.
By participating in the Soybean Management Field Days, producers will see their checkoff dollars at work bringing leading technology and ideas to producers.
Presenters include university specialists, educators and industry consultants.
Agronomists and plant disease and insect specialists will be available to address production-related questions. Participants can bring unknown crop problems for complimentary identification.
Free registration is available the day of the event.
