Join us this Wednesday, March 29, for the final Strategic Farming webinar as Dr. Brian Luck, Associate Professor and Vice Chair of the University of Wisconsin Biological Systems Engineering Department, discusses planter adjustments that are important to consider before planters get rolling this April.

Dr. Luck will review best management practices for maintenance and proper adjustment of downforce systems, row cleaners when operating in variable field conditions, closing wheels, and seed delivery tubes.  Many of these technology adjustments can aid in effective planting at higher speeds. 

Following Dr. Luck’s presentation, Dr. Seth Naeve, University of Minnesota Extension soybean agronomist, will also be on the program to discuss early soybean planting trends and considerations. Bring your questions for the speakers, as there will be plenty of time for discussion.

Seth will review new national resources for soybean growers developed by the Science for Success Agronomy team. The Science for Success partnership brings together 27 Extension specialists from land-grant institutions across the country, representing more than 90% of US soybean acres.
