Welcome Greg!

Posted by Russel Higgins - Soybeans

This week Greg Steckel joined Dave Lindgren and I at the NIARC. Greg's official title will be research agronomist at the center. Greg's education includes an undergrad degree at Western Illinois University, M.S. at Missouri and a Ph.D. in weed science from the University of Illinois. Greg and his wife Cindy and their three children will soon be relocating to northern Illinois. The chest high soybeans Greg is standing in are from our date of planting x soybean maturity study. The soybeans certainly do not lack vegetative growth, but final yield will be dependent on how successfully the pods are filled. Before the afternoon light showers we managed to spray our final additives on R5 soybeans.
