Herbicide Damage in Soybeans
Earlier in the spring I saw some early planted soybeans that just did not look healthy. There are plenty of things that could cause problems in early planted soybeans. Dr. Aaron Hager of University of Illinois recently posted an article on the University IPM website about herbicide damage. He suggests reading ratings guides to determine potential for herbicide damage from various products. Stand counts should determine the need to replant. Different varieties have vulnerabilities as well. All the experts are encouraging use of soil applied herbicides, but we need to do so with caution.
