URBANA, Ill. – Soybean farmers who take a ten-minute online survey will help University of Illinois crop scientists and Extension educators to better understand how decisions are made in their farms regarding soybean management and inputs and to tailor programs and projects to improve yields and profitability.

“By gathering baseline information about current management practices and technology adoption, we will be able to develop programs and focus research on the most critical agronomic issues for soybean farmers in Illinois,” said U of I crop scientist Maria Villamil.

The survey is funded by the Illinois soybean checkoff. Villamil requests that soybean farmers take the survey by April 10.

The survey is a collaborative effort between the Department of Crop Sciences in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois, U of I Extension, and the Illinois Soybean Association. The Farm Journal-AgWeb Research will be distributing an invitation to participate in the survey by email.

Questions about the survey can be sent to María Villamil at villamil@illinois.edu or Anne Silvis at asilvis@illinois.edu.
