SOYLEIC FIELD DAY
ISA sponsored lunch at the U of I Agronomy Day on August 19th, as part of a Soyleic Field Day that afternoon. Dr. Brian Diers, Dr. Steven Schnebly, and Mr. Bryan Stobaugh discussed opportunities created by soybean varieties with high quality oil produced by the Soyleic trait. SOYLEIC, patented by the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council, is a non-GMO, high-oleic trait available for today’s soybean varieties, which results in high oleic oil and meal.

The U of I soybean breeding program has been developing SOYLEIC varieties since 2015 through support by the United Soybean Board (USB). Although breeding is a long-term effort and combining the four genes required for SOYLEIC soybean is a difficult task, the program is now achieving success and has developed experimental lines that combine competitive yields with the SOYLEIC trait.
 

UPCOMING PCM FIELD DAY
Join us for a cover crop and soil health field day in Champaign County on August 27th! Lead by IL Corn and Illinois Soybean Association's Precision Conservation Management program, we will be highlighting the management practices of the Rademacher farm and hear from speakers focused on what best management practices in Illinois are working. During the field day, we will not only hear from Illinois researchers and farmers, but we also plan to be out in the field looking at a cover crop demonstration plot and soybean field plot. Find out how cover crops can work in your system whether you're just starting out or wanting to advance to the next level. We hope this field day will provide you with the resources you need to have a successful cover crop experience!
