U.S. soybean farmers can now get the latest soybean production research information from top soybean agronomists and scientists on the United Soybean Board Web site.

“Focus on Soybeans” webcasts provide U.S. soybean farmers and farm managers with the latest news in U.S. soybean production practices and soybean research updates. The site is presented by the soybean checkoff and the Plant Management Network.

“These webcasts provide a great resource for soybean farmers to help protect and manage their crops better,” says Rick Stern, USB production program chair and a soybean farmer from Cream Ridge, N.J. “In addition to the webcasts, they have access to other important science-backed information.”

U.S. soybean farmers have free access to this valuable information through a link on the homepage of the Web site, www.unitedsoybean.org at no cost for one month. New webcasts will be available the last Monday of each month.

The February/March webcast is a two-part series entitled “Glyphosate Stewardship for Soybeans” by Chris Boerboom, Extension weed scientist, University of Wisconsin-Madison. This webcast will be available Feb. 22 to March 29, 2010.

“Personally, I like the ability you have to listen to these webcasts on your own time,” says Stern. “If you like something you hear, you can always come back and listen to them again.”
