Terminating soybean irrigation too early can result in lower yield due to decreased seed size. At the same time, irrigating when the crop no longer needs water can be a waste of time and resources. On Friday, August 30, 2013 a turn-row Field Day will be held to discuss soybean irrigation termination, crop growth stages, and tools that can be used to help with making termination decisions.
This training will be held at Mississippi State University’s Delta Research and Extension Center. Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the B.F. Smith Building. We will then travel a short distance to the field with the tour starting at 9:30 a.m. Anyone with an interest in soybean irrigation is welcome to attend. CCA credits in Soil & Water Management will be available. For more information, please contact Trent Irby (662-418-7842), Jason Krutz (662-588-8974), Tom Eubank (662-822-1964), or Bobby Golden (479-409-6191).
