Derek's Notes



Soybean Planting Date

This week’s blog is brought to you by Wilt Billing, Area Agronomist

Date

Studies support the idea of planting soybeans early to get maximum yield production.  This fact is true, earlier planning does trend higher soybean yields in general.  However these reports leave out an important disclaimer.  Yes, there is a benefit for both yield and harvest moisture to planting beans early… as long as the bean plants emerge and establish viable plants.  Planting into too cold of soil or soils with cold wet weather immediately following planting, will reduce plant stands and can reduce yields.  So plant beans early, into suitable warm soils…. but remember soybans require a lot of heat and moisture to germinate.  Mitigate early season stand loss due to seedling diseases by using a seed treatment
