LITTLE ROCK – Soybean growers who faced weather-ravaged crops in the 2019 season will
hear guidance for production and marketing decisions, during the 2020 Tri-State Soybean
Forum, Jan. 3 in Dumas, Arkansas.
The meeting will be held at the Dumas Community Center, 18 Belmont Street. There is
no cost to attend. For information, contact the Ashley County, Arkansas, extension
office at 870-853-2080.
“To say the 2018 and 2019 growing seasons have been challenging for Mid-South soybean
growers is an understatement,” said Kevin Norton, Ashley County extension staff chair
for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. “We want to help our
growers by offering some help for their decision-making.”
This year’s preliminary agenda includes:
Bob Stark, professor of agricultural economics, at the University of Arkansas a Monticello,
said this annual meeting was a means for “Mid-South soybean growers to compare notes
and learn from specialists in all three states.
“Winter gives us an opportunity to get a wider perspective on the soybean crop, both
looking back to the previous season and hearing advice that could help improve 2020,”
To learn more about managing soybeans, contact your county extension office, or visit
