Soybean Management Field Days are planned at four locations across Nebraska from Aug. 9-12.

Thanks to a continued partnership between the Nebraska Soybean Board and Nebraska Extension, since 1999 these soybean-focused field and research projects have brought together a team of University of Nebraska specialists, educators and industry consultants to present on various topics related to NSB checkoff research, marketing and education.

This year’s topics, conveyed at the four research farm site locations, will be insect management, soybean diseases, irrigation management, weeds, ag economics, fertility and precision ag, among others.

The locations for this year’s field events are Aug. 9 at Toepfer Farms, Blue Hill; Aug. 10 at Greg Greving Farm, Central City; Aug. 11 at Daryl Obermeyer Farm, Brownville; and Aug. 12 at Bill Method Farm, near Decatur.

Flame weeding workshop set

The Nebraska flame weeding workshop, scheduled for Aug. 17 at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center (ENREC) in Ithaca, will present results from 10 years of research conducted by the teams of Stevan Knezevic, University of Nebraska professor of agronomy and horticulture specializing in weed science, and George Gogos, UNL professor of mechanical engineering.

This work has resulted in more than 20 scientific publications, 100 abstracts, and equipment for flame weeding.

The cost is $150 per registration (includes lunch and one flame weeding manual) and $10 for a spouse or guest’s meal. Registration is available online.

Directions to the site, accommodation information and a video about the university’s flame weeding research are available at agronomy.unl.edu.

Midwest corn and soybean clinics

Nebraska Extension Midwest Corn Production Clinics, set for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 23-24 at ENREC, provide the opportunity to see a growing season in one place. The event includes plots with corn growth and development at a range of vegetative or reproductive growth stages at the corn clinic on Aug. 23, and soybean stages and growth on Aug. 24.

For information on either clinic or both, call 800-529-8030 or visit enrec.unl.edu/crop.
