The sixth annual Midwest Soybean Conference convenes in Des Moines Aug. 10-12, providing producers with 14 different breakout sessions. Included are two panel discussions on South America — one focusing on crop production, the other on the region's transportation infrastructure.

Among many other topics, look for marketing and financial discussions by Richard Brock, author of The Brock Report and management consultant Roy Ferguson.
