COLUMBIA, Mo. – The 2023 University of Missouri Crop Management Conference, Dec. 6-7 in Columbia, offers updates on a little-studied subject: management of sulfur fertilizer in soybean production.

MU Extension specialist Gurbir Singh will share results of two years of site-specific MU research. He will discuss variable-rate applications from a multiyear experiment that evaluated the effects of fertilizer source, rate and placement on soybean yields.

Leading agriculture experts from MU, Purdue University, the USDA Agricultural Research Service and the University of Nebraska will give new information on weeds, diseases, insects, crop management and new technologies at the Dec. 6-7 conference at the Columbia Holiday Inn Executive Center.

MU Extension weed scientist Kevin Bradley says the event will interest farmers and ag professionals, who will hear from researchers about new tools and technology to boost yields.

Other timely topics include soybean gall midge and dectes stem borer, outlooks for row crops, a review of the 2023 drought and biological nitrogen management systems.

Bradley said certified crop advisers may receive up to 16 credit hours for attending.
