Technology in the form of “big data” may guide farmers’ selection of soybean varieties best-suited for their fields. Data may come from drones overhead or in-depth analysis of soil. Data may include climate impact. Big numbers are topics for talks April 10 at the U.S. Soybean Symposium on the University of Missouri campus, Columbia. Speakers include researchers and farmers, says Bill Wiebold, MU Extension soybean specialist.
