Terry Wyciskalla, Soy CCA Envoy from Southwest Illinois, discusses how the soil fertility needs differ between soybeans and corn. Soybeans require higher potassium levels in the soil and less phosphate. A higher pH between 6.5 and 6.8 is ideal for soybeans as well, whereas corn can still thrive on a lower soil pH. All of these factors are important for farmers to consider as they head into the 2016 growing season.
