The following series of videos have been produced as an educational tool for Tennessee soybean farmers. They cover such topics as: recognizing soybean growth stages, identifying and managing glyphosate-resistant weeds, insect scouting, and identifying common soybean diseases.
Your Tennessee Soybean Promotion Board worked cooperatively with the United Soybean Board and the University of Tennessee Cooperative Extension Services using soybean checkoff dollars to produce the brief program in order to improve the profit potential for all Tennessee soybean farmers.
