During the 2021 growing season, South Carolina farmers reported planting 390,000 acres of soybeans and 420,000 acres of corn. To bring research results and production information to SC farmers for the 2022 crop year, Clemson Extension partnered with the SC Soybean Board to host the SC Corn and Soybean Growers meeting on December 8, 2021. The program was held at the Santee Conference Center in Santee, SC. The program featured Clemson Extension Specialist and out-of-state speakers. Topics covered included research related to the production of soybeans and corn in the southeast, proper adjustment and maintenance of harvesting equipment, and economics of production for 2022. Growers were also able to interact with approximately 25 vendors in the trade show. There was a great turnout of growers and ag industry representatives, with some 200 persons attending.
