Share Tweet Email

A series of four K-State Soybean Production Schools will be offered in early February to provide in-depth training targeted for soybean producers and key-stakeholders. The schools will be held at four locations around the state. The schools will be sponsored by Kansas Soybean Commission.

The one-day schools will cover a number of issues facing soybean growers: irrigation management; weed control strategies; crop production practices, nutrient and soil fertility, insect, and disease management.

The final dates and specific locations have been set. The focus of the Soybean Schools will be in east central, southeast, north central, and south central Kansas.
