ISSUE 12   July 29, 2010


Producers, agricultural consultant and other interested in agriculture can use the updated soybean production (spiral bound) pocket field guide to obtain the latest information about soybean production. The previous field guide was published in 2002 and was in need of major updates especially on soybean cyst nematodes, soybean aphid, diseases, and other management issues. The completely revised and reviewed guide was written by state extension staff working with soybean, and other specialists from both North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota. The field guide also has a photo section at the back of the booklet with pictures of pests and diseases. The 2010 Soybean Production Field Guide (A-1172) was partially funded by the North Dakota Soybean Council, Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council and produced by the North Dakota State University Extension Service.


North Dakota growers can order a complimentary copy of the pocket guide from the North Dakota Soybean Council by phone 1-888-469-6409 or e-mail  Northwest Minnesota soybean growers should receive a complimentary copy in the mail during the first week of August.
