This hands-on, educational program challenged students to sample water from different areas on the farms and analyze that data with a report that included improvement suggestions and management changes with explanations on why it should change.
This on-farm research project, funded by the Illinois Soybean Association checkoff program, explores the impact of strategic nutrient management on soybean yield across northern and central Illinois, examining various strategies under different conditions such as no-till, strip-till, row spacing, and cover cropping to inform best practices for soybean nutrient management.
When it comes to soybeans, are there specific considerations for soil health? In this webinar, Dr. Andrew Margenot with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, reviews reasons for anticipating soybean-specific considerations on soil health processes and management and methods for testing soil health.
