As farming continues to change, it’s more important than ever for growers to stay on top of the latest agronomic research, technology trends and water quality best practices. That’s why the Ohio Soybean Council developed Field Leader. Formerly known as Soybean Rewards, Field Leader offers farmers expanded online access to the latest research and information to enhance operations.

Field Leader is focused on two key areas: agronomic research to help you maximize soybean yields and farm conservation initiatives to ensure you have the best ideas at your fingertips to continue improving water and soil quality. We’re here to share results from your soybean checkoff investments to keep you at the top of your farming game.

We’ve got helpful tips and resources to help you tackle tough challenges in the field like weed resistance, pest scouting, and nutrient management. Find results from soybean plot research and insights into new precision technology to try on the farm. Learn from experts working behind the scenes to make farmers more profitable. This includes researchers at The Ohio State University’s Soybean Center – one of the top soybean research facilities in the U.S. – as well as Ohio farmers who use water quality best practices on their farms.

“Farmers invest soybean checkoff dollars in research and promotion efforts to enhance farm profitability,” said Steve Reinhard, vice chairman, Ohio Soybean Council Board of Trustees, Crawford County, Ohio. “We want them to know the results of those activities and meet other farmers and experts who can serve as resources to help them lead the way in their fields.”

We’re looking forward to helping you grow your leadership in the field. Bookmark this site to make it your go-to agronomic resource and be sure to sign up for our monthly newsletter to get helpful information delivered to your inbox. Trust us – you won’t want to miss a thing.
