2014 SMaRT soybean on-farm research meetings
Learn how various management practices, products and equipment impacted soybean yields and income in on-farm research trials conducted across Michigan in 2013.
The results from the 2013 SMaRT (Soybean Management and Research Technologies) on-farm research projects will be presented at four programs conducted around the state during the last week of January 2014. All four programs will begin at 8:45 a.m. and end with a complimentary lunch. The dates and locations for the four programs are listed below.

Participants will learn how various management practices, products and equipment impacted soybean yields and income in 2013. The top 10 factors that appear to affect soybean yields in eight years of the Michigan soybean yield contest will also be presented. Tim Boring, research director for the Michigan Soybean Checkoff, will discuss the future direction for soybean research in Michigan. Time has been allocated for input and questions from participants and open discussion regarding the information presented at the program. This program has been approved for one pesticide applicator recertification credit.
