LSU AgCenter Soybean Specialist Dr. Ronnie Levy is going to retire later this month after working with Louisiana soybean farmers for quite a number of years.
“I guess my highlight has been being able to work with some of the good producers throughout the state and to see the accomplishments that they have made in production,” said Levy.
“We have some of the best farmers anywhere in the world and it shows. Just being able to work with that group, work with the promotion board, work with the industry, it’s just been something that you can’t express in words,” Levy said.
“It’s been very enjoyable to me and hopefully I’ve made a little bit of a difference in how producers have been able to stay in business and to produce a crop,” he says.
While Levy and the other crop specialists may not have all the answers to all the problems producers face each season “we try to do what we can to help producers with up-to-date research and recommendations that will help optimize their yields and keep them in business.”
