There is a great resource for soybean producers available at the Plant Management Network at the Focus on Soybean website. The site contains webcasts with PowerPoint slides narrated by university researchers from around the country, with presentations related to crop production, and crop protection. Topics include use of foliar applied fungicides for soybean in the North Central United States, choosing specialty soybeans for the right niche market, sudden death syndrome, soybean cyst nematode: biology, scouting and management and others. A sample webcast, Seedborne Pathogens of Soybean can be accessed at: http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/edcenter/seminars/SampleWebcast/
The soybean new section contains timely articles related to soybean production. One of the latest articles posted was written by Mike Staton, “Strategies Available to Help Soybean Growers Reduce Harvest Losses.” A subscription to Plant Management Network includes access to applied journals, pesticide trials, crop management variety trials and more. Subscriptions are $45 per year and can be ordered at : http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/Subscriptions/
