SMART Day Registration Closes Tomorrow

Only 40 registration spots left for SMART Day on July 22nd

Carman, MB (July 16, 2015) – Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) is pleased with the interest in SMART Day, taking place on Wednesday, July 22nd in Carman, MB. The Soybean Management & Research Transfer (SMART) Day is a field event designed for farmers and agronomists to sharpen their soybean management skills, and only 40 spots are left! MPSG encourages you to register today if you want to participate in this top-notch event. You can register online or phone Wendy at 204-745-6488 ext. 4.

SMART Day will showcase agronomic research being conducted at the Ian N. Morrison research farm in Carman, MB. Attendees will view research plots and take part in interactive lessons being planned by University of Manitoba researchers and their lab groups. The agenda has been updated recently to include impacts of erosion and iron deficiency chlorosis, dry bean row spacing and plant population studies, viewing of soybean diseases, nutrient deficiencies, planting staging and important weeds, and opportunities in non-GM and organic soybean production.

“SMART Day gives MPSG an opportunity to transfer research knowledge to the farm, and it provides an environment for farmers and researchers to interact,” says Kristen Podolsky, Production Specialist with MSPG. “It’s definitely a busy time of year, but we are confident farmers and agronomists will find this to be a valuable learning experience.”

This is a free event open to Manitoba farmers, agronomists and members of the soybean industry. Pre-registration is required by July 17th. To register and view an updated agenda, CLICK HERE!
