Transportation can often be a hindrance to education for adults. Residents in remote towns beyond city bus lines can’t travel when the car breaks down. High gas prices mean that car trips must be planned and limited to necessary errands.

To relieve Tennessee soybean farmers of that decision, Extension specialists in the University of Tennessee IPM program bring the training to the farmer.
