Keeping up with the latest crop production techniques is the key to being a successful crop producer. Soybeans are an important part of a crop producer’s crop rotation, and the crop that Marshall County produces the most and leads Kansas in crop production.
That’s why local farmers will want to attend the Marshall County Soybean Plot Tour.
The Marshall County Extension Service, in cooperation with Lynn Bargmann of Bremen, will be holding a tour of the Marshall County Soybean Plot on Monday, September 9 at 5:30 P.M.
We will have a hamburger supper following the tour, sponsored by participating seed companies.
In addition to demonstration of soybean varieties in the plots, the soybean plot will have a seed/plant population demonstration.
The plot is located close to Lynn Bargmann’s home at 527 4th Road near Bremen. Directions to the tour are: go north of Herkimer about 3½ miles on 6th Road, turn west and go 2 miles on Deer Trail Road, then turn south on 4th Road, and cross the Horseshoe Creek Bridge and go about an mile south.
K-State Extension Personnel and Seed Company Representatives will be on hand to discuss the various soybean varieties and production techniques.
Please contact the Marshall County Extension Office at (785) 562-3531, or e-mail me at Mvogt@ksu.edu if you are interested in attending by Friday, September 6.
To learn the latest in soybean production practices, you should plan to attend the Marshall County Soybean Plot Tour on September 9.
