Pod Shattering in Soybean

Lodging can complicate corn harvest and may lead to yield loss and problems with grain storage. Ear drooping and stalk lodging may be caused by different factors including: high winds, stalk cannibalization, and stalk rots. Understanding some of the contributing factors and how to most effectively manage the harvest and storage of lodged corn may assist in harvest scheduling and planning for next season.

Soybean Planting Conditions and Seed Placement

Soybean yield potential is the result of many factors: genetics, environmental conditions and management practices. Additionally, deficient nutrient levels in the soil can also affect yield. When nutrients are limited, photosynthesis, water transport, and protein, oil and carbohydrate production can be negatively affected. A simple soil test can help evaluate the deficiencies and increase yields.

Managing Soybean Cyst Nematodes

While many pests threaten soybean yields, none are so devastating in the United States as the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). To keep SCN at bay, regular soil root examinations and soil assays are necessary. Once this pest sets in, there is no getting rid of it. Management practices may be taken, however, to help reduce…
