UT’s Soybean Scout Schools are scheduled in July for the dates and locations below. The programs are supported by the Tennessee Soybean Promotion Board and include basic information about crop development, scouting procedures, and pest management (insect, weed, and disease). The schools are approximately 2-2.5 hours long and occur field side so those attending can get hands on experience. Participants will receive scouting notebooks and a sweep net while supplies last. Mark your calendars and look for future updates.
