Quality issues with soybeans this year are leading some growers to seek alternative markets. Damaged or discolored whole, raw soybeans can be a good protein source for cattle and provide a market option for growers.
Nebraska's harvest slowed last week with just 1.3 days suitable for fieldwork, according to the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service Oct. 15 report. In both corn and soybean, 80% of the crop was rated good to excellent.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the competitiveness of three herbicide-resistant Nebraska waterhemp populations with soybean in a greenhouse environment. The results indicate the importance of enhancing early-season crop competitiveness.
