Building soybean fertility is a process that starts from the ground up. With the potential for higher soybean yields with each passing year, the need for a strong, healthy crop continues to rise. Soybeans have more complex nutrient needs than previously thought and require nutrients throughout the growing season.
Over the last several decades there have been substantial yield improvements in soybean.
Although boron (B) is considered the most deficient micronutrient in the world after zinc, dynamics of B use in plants and soils have continued to perplex farmers, agronomists and researchers for decades.
Evaluate the yield response of soybeans to Aspire®, MOP + Granular B blend and a Control treatment.
Evaluate the yield response of Aspire® (0-0-58-0.5B) compared to MOP (0-0-60) in high-yield soybean management systems.
The objective of a recently published study conducted by University of Illinois plant physiologist Dr. Fred Below and recent doctoral graduates Dr. Ross Bender and Dr. Jason Haegele was to identify which secondary macronutrients and micronutrients demand attention in a new era of soybean production.
Quantify the effect of a comprehensive fertility program including MicroEssentials® SZ® (12-40-0-10S-1Zn) + Aspire® (0-0-58-0.5B) compared to a conventional fertility program of MAP (11-52-0) + MOP (0-0-60) or MAP Only in a four-year cropping system.
While soybeans were introduced to the United States in the late 1800s as a forage source for cattle, it wasn't until 1935 that the number of acres for soybean grain exceeded forage-based acres. This milestone marked the beginning of a new era in soybean production, which has influenced the fertility needs of soybeans.
The growing season of 2014 has the potential to yield a record harvest in many areas of the country. With good weather conditions, high soil fertility and a combination of high-yielding varieties, crops look strong and healthy. But there’s more being removed from the fields than just a crop harvest — record yields mean record nutrient removal from the soil.
With the potential for higher soybean yields with each passing year, the need for a strong, healthy crop continues to rise. It also requires a high level of management that starts with scouting.
Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) can wreak havoc on a soybean field, causing yield losses as high as 75 percent, and costing millions of dollars in lost commodity. The parasite infects the roots of soybean plants, suppressing root and plant growth. And once found in a field, SCN is nearly impossible to eliminate.
Determine the rate of MicroEssentials® SZ® that can safely be placed with soybean seed in 7.5 inches and 30 inches row spacings.
