Hitting your mailboxes soon will be the June issue of Illinois Field & Bean! This edition is dedicated to ILSoyAdvisor and demonstrates our mission to communicate unbiased, expert agronomic and management advice for Illinois farmers.

In the magazine, you will read a feature from our 2023 Soy Envoy class in “Who Knows Your Rows?”. These experts are out in the field and provide their top management advice to consider this growing season. From scouting to population to fungicides, the Soy Envoys provide timely and relevant information all season long on ILSoyAdvisor.com.

Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) Director of Agronomy, Abigail Peterson, provides an agronomy update in the article, “ISA Agronomy: Here, There, and Everywhere.” Get to know our team and what we do at ISA. From carbon markets to crop reporting and everything in between, Abigail highlights the work our team is doing across the state.

Megan Miller, ISA Agronomy Programs Manager, writes a feature on how to navigate conservation programs and highlights the ILSoyAdvisor Carbon & Date Guidebook. This tool is also available on ILSoyAdvisor.com.

Finally, you’ll read about “The People Behind the Platform” – featuring Stephanie Porter and myself, Kelsey Litchfield. We work every day to make sure we are providing accurate and trustworthy agronomic information. Go behind-the-scenes of ILSoyAdvisor and how we review information for the platform.

In this edition you’ll also hear from ISA staff members John Lumpe, Andrew Larson, and Claire Weinzierl. ISA Board Member, Betsey Emerick, also writes a column about how ILSoyAdvisor provides unbiased, third-party information.
