(OLNEY) Soybean farmers looking for new ways to increase per-acre profitability are encouraged to attend one of the two-hour, free field days scheduled for August 15 and 16, coming up in less than two weeks. Each event includes presentations by double-crop experts and field demonstrations with the latest management practices, including an early harvest-plant approach that can boost profitability potential. The two downstate events, which includes a light meal, will be on Wednesday, August 15, near Marion at 10:30 that morning and near Effingham at 4:20 that afternoon. The August 16 events will be near the upstate communities of Wyoming and Walnut. For details and to register, go online at www.ilsoy.org/fielddays.
