Soybean producers interested in intensive soybean management should plan to attend one of three Getting it Right meetings scheduled for Velva, Mohall and Wishek.

At the meetings, North Dakota State University Extension Service faculty and staff will discuss soybean research and 2014 production issues.

"These are soybean educational meetings with current research-based information that can help producers with soybean production decisions for the 2014 growing season," says Hans Kandel, NDSU Extension agronomist.

The meeting dates are:

  • Tuesday, Jan. 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Velva Senior Center at 122 Main St. N.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mohall Emergency Services Building at
  • 104 Central Ave. N. From the four-way stop on Main Street, go north one block.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wishek American Legion Post at 819 2nd Ave. N. From North Dakota Highway 3, turn east onto North Dakota Highway 13. From there, turn north at the Dakota Central Frontier Cooperative gas station and go one block.

Sam Markell, NDSU Extension pathologist, will provide an update on the disease outlook for 2014 and results from field research conducted in 2013. Two important topics covered will be an update on soybean cyst nematodes and how to manage soybean diseases. Kandel will provide information on variety selection, and the latest information on iron chlorosis prevention, importance of good nodulation, fertility issues and water management.

Greg Endres, NDSU area Extension specialists/cropping systems, will discuss intensive soybean management, no till and strip till versus conventional till, planting dates, plant populations and row spacing, different soybean special inputs on the market and weed management issues.

In Velva and Mohall, Janet Knodel, NDSU Extension entomologist, will discuss how to manage spider mites and soybean aphids. Pat Beauzay, NDSU entomologist, will do a similar presentation in Wishek.

NDSU Extension agents Raquel Dugan-Dibble (Velva), LoAyne Voigt (Mohall), Crystal Schaunaman (Wishek) and Sheldon Gerhardt (Wishek) will be the hosts and provide local production and crop updates.

The programs and lunches are sponsored by the North Dakota Soybean Council, which oversees promotion, research and marketing programs funded by soybean checkoff dollars.

The programs are free and open to the public. Preregistration is not necessary.
