How would you like to be able to produce 60, 70, 80 even nearly 90 bushels of soybeans per acre?
You can learn how South Dakota farmers who have topped the South Dakota Soybean Yield and Quality contest have done it. South Dakota Soybean is hosting a series of seminars this week on the topic.
"The Soybean Success Seminars are an excellent opportunity to learn what's working for other farmers throughout the state. We've analyzed two years worth of soybean yield contest data and best management practices to share at our regional meetings," says Kevin Scott, a farmer from Valley Springs and South Dakota Soybean Association board member.
Agronomists, industry leaders and yield contest participants will be on hand to answer questions and discuss best practices.
You'll also learn how to increase soybean quality and get the latest news on what's happening with the soybean checkoff, international market development and SDSA.
