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.
Results from a joint study by USDA ARS and Drexel University scientists will help farmers better weigh the merits of pressing soybeans on-site rather than transporting their crop to a crush (processing) facility.
Based on Nebraska research and a review of findings from other studies, best management practices for crimping rye before planting soybean or green bean are explored. Data on degree of weed control and soybean yields are included.
Average germination rates of new crop soybean being tested by the Nebraska Crop Improvement Association are lower than in recent years. Growers are urged to check the germination rate for their soybean seed and adjust planting rate and use of fungicide treatments accordingly.

Discussion of findings from on-farm soybean research to identify uniform field management zones and the optimum seeding rate within each zone. This is from one of the presentations to be made at the Nebraska Crop Management Conference Jan. 28-29 in Kearney.
