2020 Soybean Management Field Days Update

For over 20 years,  Soybean Management Field Days have helped soybean growers maximize productivity and profitability through smart decisions and efficient use of resources.  We’ve dealt with challenges - heavy rain, flooding, hail, high winds, and droughts.  But we adjusted and provided quality educational experiences that growers expect from Soybean Management Field Days.

But the Covid-19 pandemic has created a brand new challenge.  Even so, we are committed to sharing research-based information to improve your soybean profitability and also protecting your health and safety.  While we won't be able to offer the regular, in-person field days this year due to the pandemic, we are actively keeping the Soybean Management Field Days plots up and running and conducting research to share with growers.  We will be sharing this information with you virtually. 


We are working hard to make sure growers across the state have the opportunity to learn from ongoing research and the 2020 plots at farms in Hildreth, Elgin, Shelby, and Arlington.  Please watch for updates on this web page, on social media or contact the Nebraska Soybean Board or Nebraska Extension.
