Technology Webinars

Webinar Series on New Technology and Sustainability

Sponsored by

The American Soybean Association (ASA) and the United Soybean Board (USB) are pleased to offer a series of three educational webinars designed to help soybean farmers understand how new technology and effective data management can help improve the sustainability of their farming operation. As more customers of U.S. soybeans demand sustainably produced products, it’s important for all soybean farmers to consider practices on their farm that will meet those demands. Effective use of new technology and on-farm data management can play a key role in the sustainable production of U.S. soybeans and demonstrating that sustainability to our customers.

Webinar #1 – Using Data to Benchmark Your Farming Operation
Feb. 19, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Central Time

This first webinar will be presented by Joe Luck, Ph.D., associate professor of biological systems engineering and a precision agriculture engineer at the University of Nebraska. Data collection, analysis and benchmarking are essential to achieving and sustaining continuous improvement in the production of soybeans. Dr. Luck will discuss the various tools and techniques required to establish a valid data benchmarking program. Using examples of data applications from farm research studies focused on soybeans, he will show how data can be used to gather knowledge to improve production, and build a more sustainable farming operation.
