Over the past few years The Penn State Extension Crop Management team has been offering a Penn State Soybean Workshop to discuss current research that Penn State has conducted with assistance from the Pa Soybean Board. Growers that attended in the past have responded to surveys that they were able to use some of the tips to increase their soybean yields and in some cases growers reported growing soybeans for the first time gaining over 60 bu/acre the first year on virgin soil. The workshop will feature topics that range from Cultural practices to pest management and harvest management.
One popular session is the farmer panel in which a local successful grower shares his/her tips for making soybeans work in that geography. The workshops are offered in 4 locations throughout the state to offer site locations that might be more central for growers to attend. This season we will be offering the workshops as follows:
9 December North Hampton County
10 December Bradford County
11 December Union County
12 December Centre CountyIf you would like to attend please navigate to
