Crop Solutions that Work # 7

Planning for high yielding soybeans

By Graham McLean CCA-ON, CCS, 4R NMS
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Glencoe

             

Taking a closer look at what contributes to soybean yields, there are basically nine key areas to focus on. Let’s take a closer look at the production factors involved for higher yields. A current soil sample will allow for a sound agronomic recommendation by indicating which essential nutrients are required and at what rate. The latest concern is for the addition of sulphur. As levels decrease from atmospheric deposit, the soil levels will continue to decline. Sulphur is becoming an ever more essential ingredient in our soybean fertilizer blends. 

Congratulations

Congratulations to
