ISA Debuts Winter Learning Series for Regional Soybean Advice

This winter ILSoyAdvisor is “going local” with a brand-new series of learning opportunities spread out across the state. The Better Beans Series is comprised of regional events offering soybean farmers the chance to connect with crop consultants, agronomists, industry representatives and fellow farmers.

Sponsored by the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff program and running between Jan. 30 and Feb. 22, Better Beans Series meetings will take place in Polo, Mendota, Jacksonville, Altamont and Fairview Heights. Each half-day event will run from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. and will offer free registration, breakfast and lunch.

Certified crop advisers (CCAs) can also earn four continuing education units for attending.

“We started this series because of the diversity of issues that soybean growers face in different parts of Illinois,” says Dan Davidson, ISA director of strategic research. “We hope this series will offer targeted advice for regional issues and will help growers increase their profitability.”

Learning Opportunities
The agenda for each event is packed with valuable learning and networking opportunities to serve each individual farmer’s needs.
Each event will feature three presentations from local experts and a local farmer and expert panel with a question-and-answer session. The dates and times for the events are:
