If you missed the webinar on Monday, you can still check it out on the ASA website! The free webinar, titled Using Data to Benchmark Your Farming Operation, was led by Joe Luck, Ph.D., at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and may be viewed here.Data collection, analysis and benchmarking are essential to achieving and sustaining continuous improvement in the production of soybeans. Luck discussed the various tools and techniques required to establish a valid data benchmarking program. Using examples of data applications from farm research studies focused on soybeans, he showed how data can be used to gather knowledge to improve production, and build a more sustainable farming operation.This was the first webinar, in a series of three, designed to help soybean farmers understand how new technology and effective farm data management can help improve the sustainability of their operation. All three webinars are possible through sponsorship support provided the United Soybean Board and the soybean checkoff.
