Nebraska Soybean Management Field Days Set Aug. 8-11, 2017 at four Locations

The 19th annual Soybean Management Field Days focuses 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 are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Checkoff in partnership with Nebraska Extension in the university’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.
Dates and locations this year include: Aug. 8 - North Platte, Aug. 9 - Ord, Aug. 10 - Auburn, and Aug. 11 - Tekamah. Presenters include university specialists, educators and industry consultants.
Agronomists, plant disease, and insect specialists will be available to address production-related questions. Participants can bring unknown crop problems for complimentary identification.
The field days begin with 9 a.m. registration and conclude at 2:30 p.m. Free registration is available the day of the event. Watch for updates on locations.
