Farmers often spend the winter season making plans for next year’s crop, repairing machinery and learning new ways to improve profitability.

The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) On-Farm Network® invites farmers in southwest Iowa to a meeting to learn from ISA staff and one another. The event will be held in Atlantic on Thursday, Feb. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Attendees will hear updates and the latest management ideas from the ISA On-Farm Network team on weed management, soybean profitability, corn nitrogen rate studies, soil health and more. Continuing education credits will be available.

“A meeting such as this brings farmers and experts together to discuss issues relevant to the area, hear of new opportunities and ideas they can apply to their operations,” said Scott Nelson, On-Farm Network director.  Nelson also hopes to capture ideas on what farmers want to learn through possible on-farm replicated strip trials.

Also invited to speak is Julie McMichael, Area Resource Soil Scientist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in southwest Iowa.

The ISA farmer meeting will be at the Cass County Community Center, 805 W. 10th Street, Atlantic. The event is free to attend, open to the public, and includes lunch. An RSVP is recommended. Please email sderscheid@iasoybeans.com or phone 515-334-1063 by Feb. 7.
