Soybean Checkoff Research
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.
Western Lake Erie Harmful Algal Bloom Early Season Projection
If precipitation for the rest of the spring matches the early season forecast of near or below average rainfall, a smaller bloom, similar to 2020 (<3), is likely.
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.
