PMN Offers Two New Soybean Webcasts
Impacts of Subsurface Drainage in
This presentation by Matt Helmers, Iowa
State University, will help consultants,
growers, and other practitioners in the
Midwest region increase their understanding
of subsurface drainage and factors to
consider when planning or evaluating the
need for a subsurface drainage system.
Specifically, the impacts of drainage on
water movement, crop production, and
nitrate-nitrogen loss will be described.
Benefits and Utility of Bedding Systems for
Improved Productivity and Profitability of
Soybean Production in the Mid-South U.S.
Trey Koger, Mississippi State University, shows how soybean
productivity and profitability may be
improved through the use of bedding systems
in soybean production. The use of raised
bedding systems helps to increase and
improve the consistency of soybean yields,
especially in wet years. Because the
topography of the Delta region is
predominately flat, drainage is critical.
Both presentations are part of PMN’s
Focus on Soybean resource.
