In this Better Beans presentation, Dr. Martin Chilvers explains the widespread incidence of soybean vein necrosis virus in 2023, the limited occurrence of tar spot, the persistence of white mold amid drought, and shares management practices for phytophthora and white mold.
In this Better Beans presentation, Meaghan Anderson highlights how rapidly waterhemp resistance is outpacing herbicide development. She emphasizes the need for custom herbicide programs and for farmers to adopt non-chemical strategies.
In this Better Beans presentation, Dr. Jason Bond provides an update on a research project funded by IL Soybean, focusing on soybean stem diseases. He covers the collection of samples, shares results, and discusses incidences of specific diseases including anthracnose, SDS, charcoal rot, and more throughout the state.
Exploring effective weed management strategies, Dr. Karla Gage presents on weed control and integrated approaches at the Illinois Soybean Association's Better Beans event held at Rend Lake College in southern Illinois.
From drought to "root rot mania," Stephanie Porter, CCA and Illinois Soybean Association Outreach Agronomist, takes a retrospective look at the 2023 growing season. Watch her presentation from the Bloomington Better Beans event.
A team of researchers has been collaborating on a complex project to enhance Soybean Cyst Nematode resistance with long-term, strategic SCN management. The project, supported by the North Central Soybean Research Program, holds great potential for soybean farmers.
The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff and membership programs represent more than 43,000 soybean farmers in Illinois. The checkoff funds market development, soybean production and government relations efforts, while the membership program, Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG) and the Illinois Soybean Growers PAC actively advocates for positive and impactful legislation for farmers at local, state and national levels. ISA upholds the interests of Illinois soybean farmers through promotion, advocacy, research and education with the vision of becoming a trusted partner of Illinois soybean farmers to ensure their profitability now and for future generations.
