This year, the 2017 Nebraska Soybean Day and Machinery Expo will be hosted on December 14 to provide assistance to soybean producers. The goal is to prepare attendees with the information they need for next year’s growing season.
University of Nebraska researchers and specialists, Nebraska Soybean Checkoff representatives and soybean growers will all be on hand to answer questions.
“We are bringing back Jason Norsworthy due to the popularity of his presentation last year,” adds Nebraska Extension Educator Keith Glewen, who coordinates the expo. “This year he is going to focus on a topic that has gained widespread attention and is on the mind of most growers – dicamba.”
In addition, Norsworthy will be on hand to highlight research conducted to understand the off-target movement of certain formulations of dicamba.
Other individuals who will be speaking at the event include Wells Fargo Agricultural Economist Michael Swanson and Nebraska Weed Management Extension Educator Chris Proctor. Swanson will address growing top yielding soybeans, while Proctor will discuss how accurate measurements are often overlooked, as well as herbicide resistance.
The expo will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 2:15 p.m. at the pavilion at the Saunders County Fairgrounds in Wahoo, Nebraska. Speakers will start their presentations at 9 a.m., and attendees will have an opportunity to view exhibit booths beforehand.
