Good Report for Soybean Checkoff
Wed, 23 Jul 2014

Emerado, North Dakota farmer Jared Hagert is home from a recent United Soybean Board meeting in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The USB treasurer says the Board heard a good report on the Return on Investment of the soybean checkoff. “We heard that the return is $5.20 for each dollar invested since the beginning of the checkoff.” Despite the big jump in soybean acres this year, Hagert says that doesn’t necessarily meant the USB’s budget will increase. “It means more opportunity for collection of checkoff dollars. But, a change in demand has a bigger effect on our budget by raising prices than just having more supply.”
Food Grade Soybeans Are a Good Fit
Wed, 23 Jul 2014

Moorton, North Dakota farmer Brett Johnson says food grade soybeans are a good fit in their rotation. “We’re about half soybeans and half corn. Of the soybeans, about one-third are food grade soybeans. There’s a price premium. It’s a conventional bean, so the chemical resistance is less of an issue because you’re able to use some different chemistries on beans.” He says his crops have perked up with the recent warmer temperatures. “They’ve really come around. The maturity is a little bit behind, but they look a lot better than they did two or three weeks ago.”
Blackleg, White Mold and Clubroot
Wed, 23 Jul 2014

North Dakota State University extension plant pathologist Sam Markell is reminding canola growers to be on the lookout for several diseases. “Blackleg is the first one. White mold is the second one. People know those two pretty well. Clubroot is the third one. We found the first field in North Dakota last year at the end of the season. Clubroot’s nasty. It can cause some significant yield loss.” Markell says because Club Root is a soil borne pathogen it moves slowly. “With dirty equipment and moving equipment from field to field, we can move that pathogen around.”
