Project Summary

This project is a verification program that works directly with farmers interested in high yields. The specific objective of the project is to verify the impact of using current management recommendations from ISU compared to current practice on farms that have been identified as low yielding. The project involves Iowa State University Extension field agronomists working with 2-3 soybean farmers and the appropriate Corn and Soybean Initiative agribusiness partners to systematically apply best management practices to improve soybean yields and profitability. Project results will be educational materials for soybean field guides, presentations, media articles and used in a statewide program for soybean farmers.
