Letter from ISA President

Welcome to the 2017 ISA Research Conference.

As soybean farmers, each of us are continuously looking for innovative ways to improve our farming operations. Our goal with the ISA Research Conference is to help you be more profitable and further improve your farming career.

The Iowa Soybean Research teams and invited speakers will offer the latest insight on major production and environmental topics impacting the agricultural industry. Throughout the conference, you will have the opportunity to network with researchers and other farmers. We will begin with a mega issues discussion highlighting weed resistance, monarch and pollinator habitat, digital agriculture and landowner-operator conversations. The second day will feature research presentations on conservation drainage, crop health, cover crops, soil and water quality, on-farm research results, new technology and much more.
We hope you enjoy everything the conference has to offer. Whether you farm 100 acres; 10,000 acres; or somewhere in between, I guarantee there will be something of value for you.
