Soybean Production Workshops
The Penn State Extension Crop Management Team has scheduled four Soybean Production Workshops in December. These day-long workshops teach soybean producers new integrated pest and cultural management practices covering the entire growing season, from planting to harvest. Support for the workshops is provided in part by the Pennsylvania Soybean Board through the soybean checkoff.
Each workshop will feature Penn State researchers, experienced soybean growers, and county Extension personnel presenting information covering all aspects of soybean production from planting to harvest. Topics include information on optimizing variety selection and planting rates, fertility management, weed, insect and disease scouting and harvest management.
The workshops will be held at the following locations:
