A closer look at air and soil temperatures in April and soybean germination and emergence from 10 planting dates did not find chilling injury, despite periods below 50°F. Further research is needed to better understand the imbibitional period in soybean.
If you're planning to get an early start on your soybean planting, be sure to check for recommended soil temperatures and the forecast for the coming 48 hours to ensure optimal conditions for achieving good emergence.
The environmental conditions allowing for anhydrous injury in 2018 are different then what we are experiencing this year. This brief looks at factors affecting the conversion from ammonia to usable soil nitrate.
The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network (NOFRN) has expanded the area where it is seeking 20 farmers to study how to optimize soybean yields. Here's more on the practices being studied and what's needed from the growers and the university researchers.
This course, to be held at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Education Center near Mead, is ideal for new employees preparing to take the Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) exam and serves as an excellent refresher course for experienced personnel.
