High yield for wheat and double crop soybeans starts now with the combine. Illinois Soybean Association Soy Envoy, Kelly Robertson, shares insight into preparing the combine to roll through the field and residue management for timely and even emergence of wheat and double crop soybeans.
As farmers start planning their wheat harvest and soybean planting, Soy Envoy Leo Rocha continues his soybean pathology series with a summary of some research projects developed at Southern Illinois University looking into the impact of wheat on the soybean cyst nematode.

The USDA Risk Management announced this summer that agricultural producers may have options for double crop soybeans (or other crops) insurance in counties where the “Following Another Crop” (FAC) practice in not available.
Farmers and researchers are invited to learn best field practices and strategies from top Illinois and Kentucky double-crop farmers during the Illinois Wheat Association’s (IWA) upcoming 2023 Double Crop Farmers Forum.
Scott Eversgerd, CCA Soy Envoy and Pioneer field agronomist, joins the podcast this month to discuss double-cropping soybeans and what growers can do to maximize yields on those acres. He provides tips to help get the crop off to a good start and also gives an update on wheat crop harvest conditions. ILSoyAdvisor Podcasts · Successfully Double-Cropping Soybeans
Wheat harvest will begin in the southern-most tip of Illinois in just a matter of days, and double crop soybean planting will be right behind it. For many years, it was widely accepted that this crop of beans was just a bonus and that counting on any bushels from this crop was risky. We have discovered that with a few management tweaks and attention to detail, these acres can yield extremely well and will often compete with full season beans on yield. Below are some discussion points around maximizing the yield of this crop: Planting Date – The data [...]
The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff and membership programs represent more than 43,000 soybean farmers in Illinois. The checkoff funds market development, soybean production and government relations efforts, while the membership program, Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG) and the Illinois Soybean Growers PAC actively advocates for positive and impactful legislation for farmers at local, state and national levels. ISA upholds the interests of Illinois soybean farmers through promotion, advocacy, research and education with the vision of becoming a trusted partner of Illinois soybean farmers to ensure their profitability now and for future generations.
