NDSU schedules ‘Getting It Right’ soybean production meetings

NDSU Extension Service faculty and staff will present three “Getting It Right” meetings for soybean producers interested in intensive soybean management. Presenters will discuss soybean research and 2009 production.

"These are soybean educational events that can help producers with soybean production decisions and answer questions about intensive soybean management," says Hans Kandel, NDSU Extension agronomist.

The meeting dates are Wednesday, Jan. 28, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Catholic Church meeting room in Oakes, N.D.; Thursday, Jan. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Langdon, N.D., Research Extension Center; and Friday, Jan. 30, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Gladstone Inn in Jamestown, N.D.

Sam Markell, NDSU Extension pathologist, will provide an update on the disease outlook for 2009 and results from field research conducted in 2008. Kandel will address variety selection, the latest information about iron chlorosis prevention, the importance of good nodulation, fertility issues and water management.

Greg Endres or Lionel Olson, NDSU area Extension specialists for cropping systems, will discuss intensive soybean management, no-till and strip-till versus conventional-till planting rates, planting dates, plant populations, seed sizes, different soybean production products on the market and weed management issues. Eugene Elhard (Oakes), Ronald Beneda (Langdon) and Lance Brower (Jamestown), NDSU Extension county agents, will provide crop budgets and local updates.

The programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not necessary.
