Soybean Seeding Rates
It seems that some people have felt compelled that as we push corn populations higher, we should do the same with soybeans. We need to remember that soybeans are much different than corn plants. University of Nebraska recently did some research on ideal soybean populations. Their research confirms what others in the Midwest have found as well. In keeping with yesterday's theme, we need to watch what we do in soybeans just as closely as if we are planting corn, but the practices are not the same. Plant populations of 180,000 are probably a waste of seed. Little things can mean extra profits in soybeans too.
