South Dakota seminars focus on yield, quality

The South Dakota Soybean Association is holding a series of regional Soybean Success Seminars next week. The sessions focus on methods to help farmers increase soybean yield and quality. During the seminars, agronomists will present best management practices and trends based partly on three years of Yield Contest data collected by the South Dakota Soybean Association.

“I would like to encourage all soybean farmers to come out to one of our regional meetings,” said Paul Casper, soybean farmer from Lake Preston and president of the South Dakota Soybean Association, in comments prepared for a news release. “The Soybean Success Seminars are an excellent opportunity to learn what’s working for other farmers throughout the state, and how you can implement new practices in your own operation.”
