Corn, Dry bean and Soybean Production Tour at CREC on August 23


What are the most economically important disease threats in corn, soybean and dry bean, and how to manage them? How can I get the most return on my starter fertilizer in corn and dry bean? Why should I consider using rye in my soybean or dry bean fields? Farmers and crop advisers will have these and other production questions answered during the annual row crop field tour on Thursday, Aug. 23, at North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center.

Registration (with refreshments) will start at 4 p.m. and the tour will begin promptly at 4:30.

Tour topics are:

  • Goss’ wilt and leaf blight management in corn
  • Managing soybean cyst nematode and root diseases in soybean and dry bean
  • Choosing row spacing to minimize the impact of white mold in soybean
  • Optimizing fungicide control of white mold in soybean and dry bean
  • Research update with rye as a cover crop for soybean and dry bean
  • Soybean and dry bean variety performance and selection
  • Corn and dry bean starter fertilizer research update

A supper sponsored by North Dakota Soybean Council and Northarvest Bean Growers Association will follow the tour.

Continuing education credits in crop (1), pest (1), nutrient (0.5), and soil and water (0.5) management will be available for certified crop advisers participating in the event.
