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.
