Cover Crops Yield Agronomic Benefits, Weed Control


Four years ago, we created the Field to Film video series. Each year, six videos are released highlighting checkoff-funded research leading to new technologies and procedures for soybean producers.

The latest video released features Dr. Trent Roberts with the University of Arkansas’s Division of Agriculture. Searching for ways to increase sustainability and yield for soybean producers, Roberts and his team have been studying the benefits of cover crops.

Watch our newest video to learn how cover crops can help when battling pests and weeds. If you aren’t able to watch, our Arkansas Soybean Podcast has you covered.

Arkansas Soybean Month, Kitchen|Fields Table Tour Serve Arkansas Consumers


When we aren’t creating videos and podcasts to share the latest research or educate students on the vast field that is agriculture, we’re working with Arkansas restaurants and food bloggers to help consumers know the role they play in the soybean industry.

To tell the story of how soybeans became the largest row crop in the state valued at $2 billion, we created the Kitchen|Fields Table Tour and Arkansas Soybean Month.

Each November, we apply for an official proclamation from the governor declaring November Arkansas Soybean Month. To kick the most delicious month off, we invite industry experts, food bloggers and other soybean officials to a launch dinner. Over a one-of-a-kind meal, we start the conversation about Arkansas soybeans.
