Soybean Planting Progress and Vegetative Growth

There are several common misconceptions about soybean plants at the VC to V3 growth stage.

Soybean Seed Germination Concerns

Six Tips to Improve Soybean Germination and Emergence

SCN Testing in newly planted corn fields

“Things like soil health, chemical and physical soil characteristics, texture, pH, organic matter, extractable nutrients and respiration will all help us better understand the SCN population dynamics.”

Terminating Cover Crops

Cover crops are commonly terminated with herbicides. Crimper crop rollers can terminate cover crops naturally, reducing herbicide application.

High Management and High Yielding Soybeans in Washington County

“There are a lot of tools we can use to get the nutrients into the crop.” – Jonah Neill, Washington County Farmer

Soybean Planting Progress, Emergence, and Misconceptions

At this point in the growing season, obtaining a stand of sufficient plant population is the first step in ensuring maximum soybean yield.

Spring SCN Testing and a Research Opportunity for Ohio Growers

While it is important to know about the presence of SCN in a field, it is more important to know the SCN numbers.

First Time No-tillers

In tilled fields, poor soil structure and soil compaction are major issues.  This creates a major problem for famers switching to no-till.

Planting Date and Crop Yields

Mudding crops in can be a disaster if it gets dry.  Shallow rooted crops in compacted soils often result in poor crop stands and low yields.
