A series of four K-State Soybean Production Schools will be offered in early February 2015 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 are sponsored by Kansas Soybean Commission, DuPont, Monsanto, Bayer CropScience, and BASF.
The one-day schools will cover a number of issues facing soybean growers: production practices; soil fertility; weed control; insect and disease management; and risk management.
The dates and locations are:
