Soybean workshops set for December

The Penn State Extension Crop Management Team has scheduled four soybean production workshops in December.

The daylong workshops teach soybean producers new integrated pest and cultural management practices covering the entire growing season, from planting to harvest.

Each workshop will feature Penn State researchers, experienced soybean growers and county Extension personnel presenting information covering all aspects of soybean production from planting to harvest.

Topics include information on optimizing variety selection and planting rates, fertility management, weed, insect and disease scouting and harvest management.

The workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the following dates and locations:

• Dec. 12 at the Penn State Extension Mercer County office in Mercer;

• Dec. 13 at the Towanda Rod & Gun Club in Towanda, Bradford County;

• Dec. 19 at the Penn State Extension Berks County office in Leesport; and

• Dec. 21 at the York County 4-H Center in York.

A $15 fee covers lunch and materials.

Registration is due by Dec. 8. Register online at or call Penn State Registration Support at 1-877-345-0691 to register by phone.

Support for the workshops is provided in part by the Pennsylvania Soybean Board through the soybean checkoff.

Certified Crop Adviser and pesticide credits are available at each location.
