Thoughts and Considerations for the 2021 soybean cropping season
Presented by: Dr. Jason A. Bond
Weed Scientist, Mississippi State University, Delta Research and Extension Center
In Mississippi, soybean production is spread across a large window of planting dates encompassing varying environmental conditions. Challenges to include replant decisions, herbicide options, resistant weed biotypes, and environmental conditions just to name a few make soybean management extremely complex. Therefore, research at the Mississippi State University Delta Research and Extension center was conducted to address some of these challenges in hopes to aide soybean producers.
Successes And Failures In Treating Root Knot Nematodes In Soybeans And Corn
Presented by: Perry Galloway
Arkansas Farmer: Soybeans, Wheat, Corn, Rice, Grain Sorghum
Galloway has been dealing with high level, yield robbing populations of Root-knot nematodes in both soybeans and corn for numerous years. Affected fields can have record yields in areas and absolute zero yield in others. “It doesn’t average well,” hesays. He has tried all available methods of control including seed treatments, fumigation, resistant varieties and foliar pesticides. He will discuss his successes and failures in dealing with this pest.
Galloway raises 5,000 acres of soybeans, 4,000 acres of corn, 1,000 acres of rice and 750 acres of wheat. He has been farming since 1992. He attended the University of Mississippi and studied general business.
