Our last Better Beans event of the year will be held February 23rd at Southern Illinois University in the Carbondale Stadium Club Suites. Come and meet your hometown team of agronomists!

In Carbondale, we’ll connect you to Terry Wyciskalla, a certified crop advisor specializing in soil sampling, nutrient management, precision ag management, and soil management. We will also introduce you to two university researchers. Dr. Nick Seiter is a field crop entomologist with the University of Illinois and he will focus on insect management recommendations for soybean producers in southern Illinois. Dr. Karla Gage is an associate professor of weed science and plant biology at Southern Illinois University. She will share how to diversify your weed control program and the “why and how” for long-term success. 

Attendees will also hear from PhD student, Danillo Leite, an agronomist engineer from Brazil. He has been working on soybean stem diseases and will present his research at Better Beans.

This is a free event that can be attended in-person or virtually – just register on ILSoyAdvisor.com. See the agenda below for more information.
