Kevin's 2022 Soybean Production Program

Kevin's 2022 Soybean Production Program

Kevin Matthews is sharing his soybean production program for normal non-irrigated production fields with a yield goal of 70+ bushel per acre. From pre Emergence burn down to R3 fungicide and more, he shares the application timing, products, rates and observations that he uses on his non-irrigated production fields on his North Carolina farm.

New Row Cleaners, New Pitch, Improved Emergence

New Row Cleaners, New Pitch, Improved Emergence

Planting a lower population of soybeans into 300+ bushel corn no-till residue has proven to be a challenge for emergence. Kelly thinks he has figured out the solution with these new 2940 row cleaners from Yetter Farm Equipment.

 A 2x2 for Soybeans

A 2x2 for Soybeans

Kelly had success with his new closing wheel system last year in his corn trials, so this year he is taking a cue from Kevin Matthews and installing a 2x2 application on his soybean planter. He hopes that by delivering nutrients at planting through a 2x2, instead of through a foliar, he will see an improved yield response in his beans.

Planting Less, Harvesting More — Results From Soybean Population Reduction

Planting Less, Harvesting More — Results From Soybean Population Reduction

Planting fewer seeds to achieve more bushels seems counter intuitive. After all, more is more, right? Wrong. When it comes to seeding population in soybeans, “more" might simply mean more expense with less yield to show for it. Matt and Layne Miles of Miles Farms discuss the results of their planting population trials. The Miles' experimented with 140,000 population all the way down to just 60,000 seeds per acre. The results: Yields were almost identical. The Miles' explain opportunities this creates for cost savings and they also describe some of the risks associated with planting less to harvest more.

Residue Management Through Biologicals 

Residue Management Through Biologicals 

With bigger corn crops come more stover in the field, which can prevent proper seed-to- soil contact following planting. Biologicals such as ResidueRX eliminate this problem, along with preventing disease, maximizing nutrient utilization, and saving you time and money by allowing you to apply during your pre-emergent spray pass. In this episode we discuss residue management to attain bigger yields — especially while reducing planting population.
