Reminder: Soybean Gall Midge Regional Series begins February 15

Since its discovery as a new species in 2019, soybean gall midge continues to be found in new counties across five states in the Midwest. For some growers, the presence of soybean gall midge had a significant impact on soybean yield. The persistence of this new pest in existing areas and its presence in new counties highlight the need to stay up-to-date on the latest research-based information.

Join our live, two-part Midwest discussion series to hear research-based updates from university experts from Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. This virtual program will feature several short presentations during each session with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Growers, consultants, educators, and industry representatives are encouraged to join these free webinars. Registration is required and three CCA credits will be available.
