The free event is sponsored by the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council, SDSU Extension and the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. It will be held in on the SDSU Campus in Brookings. The meeting will be in Room D of the Rotunda, located on Rotunda Lane.
"This program helps farmers learn how to improve, increase and enhance soybean productivity in their fields by looking at what the state's top soybean producers are doing and management tips gained from research," said Greg Carlson, professor of Plant Science at SDSU.
During the event, growers will get a sneak peak at the newest SDSU Extension publication, "iGrow Soybeans: Best Management Practices for Soybean Production." The iGrow Soybeans: Best Management Practices for Soybean Production Manual is the result of a five-year research coordinated project with SDSU and the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council. Starting March 4, producers will be able to visit iGrow to get a spring planting preview.
"We are very excited to launch the iGrow Soybeans: Best Management Practices manual at our annual soy100 event. The soy100 event is all about achieving 100-bushel soybeans, and the Best Management Practices manual is a comprehensive guide that will help all farmers reach toward this goal," said David Iverson, soybean farmer from Astoria, S.D., and chairman of the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
