Ohio Intensive Soybean Management Workshop

This past crop season was a good year for soybean production across the state.  The weather cooperated and yields were high.  However with the lower soybean prices, intensive management practices become more important to produce a successful crop.  Several OSU Extension state specialists will be spending the day on Thursday, February 21 in Hardin County to share information with farmers in a small group hands-on workshop being held at the OSU Extension office, 1021 W Lima Street in Kenton.  The workshop will begin at 9:00 am and conclude by 3:30 pm.  This soybean workshop is open to soybean producers from across Ohio.

 

Topics and presenters for the day-long event include:

 

Soybean Production Management Strategies: Dr. Laura Lindsey, Soybean/Wheat Extension Specialist;

 

Soybean Weed Management Update: Dr. Mark Loux, Extension Weed Specialist;

 

Soybean Disease Management: Dr. Anne Dorrance, Field Crop Extension Pathologist;

 

Breaking yield barriers through soybean breeding and variety trial programs: Dr. Leah McHale, Soybean Breeding and Genetics Specialist;

In addition to the great presentations throughout the day, participants will receive a soybean management notebook that will include several useful management publications such as:

 

The Ohio Agronomy Guide or Weed Control Guide, Profitable Soybean Disease Management in Ohio, Ohio Corn, Soybean, Wheat, and Alfalfa Guide, and Stink Bug of Ohio Soybean Field Guide.
