The meetings will be held on Feb. 5 and 6.

Two Best of the Best in Wheat and Soybean Research and Marketing meetings have been set for February in Grand Forks, N.D. and Moorhead, Minn.

The first of the two meetings will be held at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks on Feb. 5 and the second at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Moorhead on Feb. 6.

Researchers and Extension specialists from the University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension will share the most recent research findings and recommendations on wheat and soybean production and marketing.

Both meetings will begin at 8:25 a.m. and adjourn around 3 p.m.

“The meetings will review recent research findings on issues that impact soybean and wheat production,” says Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University Extension agronomist and one of the organizing committee members. “Topics covered by the program are those considered to be most important to the farmers for which relevant research findings are available.”

Educational session topics are:

  • Soybean research recap
  • Using normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) images for predicting yield and protein in wheat
  • Getting the best price you can
  • The bad and the ugly; bacterial leaf streak and scab in 2019
  • Spring residue and soil water management following a wet harvest
  • Soybean cyst nematode coalition and soybean stem disease survey
  • How to allocate your limited resources to get the biggest bang for your buck
  • Are northern soybeans catching a wave of southern soybean diseases?

Five hands-on demonstrations are planned at both locations.

“These hands-on demonstrations have been a favorite part of the program for many years,” says Hans Kandel, NDSU Extension agronomist. “This part of the program is popular because the small groups of participants get a chance to see equipment, live plant material and interact directly with the presenters.”

A noon lunch will be provided at each venue. There is no participation fee but advanced registration is encouraged. Continuing education units (CEUs) will be available.

The Best of the Best meetings are sponsored by the Minnesota and North Dakota wheat and soybean grower and checkoff organizations, in conjunction with the University of Minnesota Extension and NDSU Extension.
