Farmers are invited to learn more about on-farm trial results from across the state and the latest environmental programs and practices at the Iowa Soybean Association tent Wednesday and Thursday at the 2014 Farm Progress Show in Ankeny. 

Research specialists from the On-Farm Network and Environmental Programs & Services teams will discuss specific replicated strip trials and projects from areas across the state and work with farmers to determine what opportunities might exist on their farm.

Also showcased will be a working model of a bioreactor showing how the carbon based system processes nitrate in tile water. An Unmanned Aerial System and cover crop options will also be featured.

The ISA tent 754 will be located on Seventh Street near Gate Six. Show hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.
