Producers, consultants and other industry professionals are invited to attend the 2018 Soybean College, where experts with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will be on hand to discuss the latest research findings and recommendations in soybean production.
The Division of Agriculture, in partnership with the Arkansas Crop Protection Association, will host the 2018 symposium on August 8 at the Newport Research Station from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crop consultants, industry personnel, and producers will see current research on many of the production challenges Arkansas soybean producers are experiencing today.
Participants will hear presentations from Division of Agriculture and industry personnel and have the opportunity to take part in hands-on demonstrations. The tentative agenda for the 2018 Soybean College includes:
- Herbicide Symptomology/Herbicide Technologies
- Insect Scouting Demo
- New Irrigation Technologies
- Soybean Disease Identification/Control
- Soybean Breeding/Variety Changes
- Nutrient Deficiency Identification
Registration for the 2018 Soybean College will be $100 per person. Only on-line registrations will be accepted, and no walkup registrations will be accepted the day of the event. Total participants in the 2018 Soybean College will be capped at 130 participants in order to keep breakout groups small. Paid participants will receive a complementary sweep net, hand lens, and other items.
