Soybean Summit 2016


Your Mission: Yield

Another great year for the Illinois Soybean Summit. More than 600 soybean growers attended one of three one-day Summits that were hosted by the Illinois Soybean Association and funded in part by the Illinois soybean checkoff. This year’s theme. “Mission: Yield” put the focus on productivity, with in-depth sessions that provided producers the tools to increase yields. Participants were encouraged to examine and explore various soybean management techniques that can lead to higher yields and greater profitability, such as:

  • Double crop soybeans
  • The future of phosphorus management
  • Drones in agriculture
  • Technology to improve profitability
  • Practical farm research on growing high-yield soybeans
  • Managing soybeans in an era of high residue

If you weren’t able to make these events this year, or simply want to revisit what our experts shared, the Illinois Soybean Association has made videos of the presentations from each Summit – Effingham, Peoria and Rockford – available online.
