To develop education and outreach programs for adults and youth that show how the adoption of integrated soybean management practices can increase soybean productivity, maintain environmental sustainability, sequester carbon in the soil, and be a positive influence on climate change.
1. Work with the four major farm and equipment shows to establish demo plots of the soybean production innovations at Farm Science Review in Ohio; Ag Progress Days in Pennsylvania; Farm Progress Show in Illinois/Iowa; and Husker Harvest Days in Nebraska. 2. Develop fact sheets, work with editors to get articles in farm magazines; make presentations at farm conferences and appear on radio programs. Also, establish a presence in social media by starting communications via a Facebook page and Twitter page.
