February 12 | 2019 Iowa Soybean Association Farmer Research Tour

The Iowa Soybean Association is taking the annual research conference on the road this year! The ISA research team is going on tour, stopping at three cities in Iowa. The mainstay of the 2019 Farmer Research Tour continues to be providing valuable information on the latest research and management practices you can apply to your farm. This year, there will be topics focused on your geographical area and ISA researchers will share data relevant to your region. Those attending the Cedar Rapids session will learn about the partnership between Cedar Rapids utilities and upstream farmers from special guest Utility Director Steve Hershner. On-farm, analytics and environmental research results topics will include weed management, water monitoring, nutrient management, cover crops and watershed projects.
