Seedling Diseases of Soybean

Several fungal pathogens can cause soybean seedling diseases, which can slow germination and plant growth, and even cause seedling death.
Cool temperatures and wet, poorly drained soils favor disease development.
Fungal pathogens can be difficult to manage once they are present within the environment, sopreventative measures provide the best control.

 

Burndown Applications and Soybean Planting

Delaying burndown applications can reduce yields. These important applications control winter, summer annual and perennial weeds. It also provides a clean seedbed for potentially earlier planting dates as well as uniformity in both planting conditions and stand establishment. Burndown recommendations to increase yields Roundup WeatherMAX® and Roundup PowerMAX® tips and precautions Spotlight: Burndown Applications are…

Seedling Diseases of Soybean

The most cost-effective, efficient and effective ways to protect a soy crop from disease are preventive. The three main categories of seedling diseases are: seed rot, seeding mortality, and root and stem decay. Once identified, actions can be taken to create an environment where the crop can thrive. The types of seeding diseases, causal agents…

Soybean – Optimum Planting Conditions and Seed Placement

For optimal emergence and stand establishment, soybean seed should be planted when soil temperatures are warm enough for germination. Planting depth, row spacing, and planting population are important for stand establishment and plant development. Farmers can determine when and how to plant their crop; therefore, controlling many management factors that may improve soybean yield potential.…

Harvest Aid Products for Soybean

– Later-than-normal canopy closure can lead to weedy soybean fields. – Harvest aid herbicides are used to preserve seed quality and protect yield potential by drying above ground green tissue (pods, stems, leaves) and potentially controlling weeds that may interfere with soybean harvest operations. – Harvest aid products should be applied after soybean plants have…

Interpreting Yield Results – Data Evaluation and Statistical Measurements

– Yield trial results offer an opportunity to compare agricultural products in a geography similar to one’s own farm and can assist growers in selecting quality products for next season. – As yield results are examined this fall and winter, keep in mind to evaluate multiple locations and scenarios, evaluate head-to-head comparisons, consider the statistical…
