General Agronomic Practices In Soybean Production With An Emphasis On Early Season Planting
Presented by: Tyler Hydrick, Arkansas Consultant, Ag Assistance, LLC
Hydrick will list some specific processes in order to prepare for early season soybean planting. Among them are fall tillage and adjusting the planting dates of other crops. As an example, soybeans have a very narrow window for planting to achieve maximum yields, whereas, with corn and rice, there’s a wide window to achieve maximum results.
