Missouri soybean producer Kip Cullers is no stranger to world records. He has held several record soybean yields, and recently bested his own previous mark with a new world record 160.6 bushels per acre. 

Cullers is scheduled to speak at the North Carolina Soybean Producers Forum at the Southern Farm Show at 10 am on Friday, Feb. 4, 2011 in the Martin Building on the State Fairgrounds.

Cullers co-owns and operates K&K farms outside of Joplin, Mo. He attributes his world records to selecting the best genetics, hitting the right planting date, good crop management, and a willingness to try new things.

In comparison, North Carolina’s state record yield is 92.9 bushels per acre, set in 2006 by Phil and Mike McLain in Iredell Co.

The Soybean Producers Forum at the Southern Farm Show is presented by the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association and is free to soybean producers. The forum begins at 10 am and concludes with lunch.

The Martin Building is located near Gate 9 on the midway area of the fairgrounds. All soybean farmers attending the Southern Farm Show on Friday, Feb. 4 are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP to the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association, 1-800-839-5775.
