K-State soybean schools scheduled for February
Kansas State University is partnering with companies and organizations to present K-State Soybean Schools in four locations during February.
The program at each location addresses a number of issues in depth, including crop production practices; nutrient and soil fertility; and insect, weed, and disease management, according to Ignacio Ciampitti, crop production specialist with K-State Research and Extension.
New this year are concurrent sessions on the use of new technologies, including web tools growers can use to make production decisions, as well as mobile apps and images.
Each school starts with registration at 8:30 a.m. and the program at 9 a.m., with a complimentary lunch. There is no fee to attend but participants are asked to register by Feb. 17 either online here or by contacting the K-State Research and Extension agent at the location they plan to attend.
