The 20th annual Soybean Management Field Days, scheduled for Aug. 7-10, focus on staying competitive in a global marketplace, increasing profits and meeting the world’s growing food and energy needs starting right here in Nebraska. The field days will offer producers research-based information to improve their soybean profitability.

For 20 years, Soybean Management Field Days have been helping Nebraska growers stay competitive in the global marketplace. We’ve brought research-based information to your neighborhood – 76 different farms and locations so far with nearly 9,000 growers attending since we began. Our goal remains the same as the first field day – to help soybean growers maximize productivity and profitability through smart decisions and efficient use of resources. Meeting the world’s growing food and energy needs starts right here in Nebraska – at the 2018 Soybean Management Field Days! Join us at a site near you – complimentary admission and lunch included.

The field days are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Checkoff in partnership with Nebraska Extension in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and are funded through soybean checkoff dollars. The efforts of the checkoff are directed by the United Soybean Board promoting progress powered by U.S. farmers.

By participating in the Soybean Management Field Days, producers will see their checkoff dollars at work bringing leading technology and ideas to producers. 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.
