Agronomy: Webinar: Strategies for Finishing Out the Soybean Season

Mike Wilson, Soy CCA Envoy from Southeast Illinois, explains why managing soybeans through Labor Day can help increase yield and ultimately improve growers’ bottom lines. He explains the issues that growers can see late in the season with disease, insects, weeds and nutrition.

Key Takeaways

  • Weeds can become a significant problem if left uncontrolled
    • Postmergence-only programs are not effective due to weed resistance
  • Applying nutrients late in the season can help soybeans thrive through the end of the season.
    • Fred Below, Ph.D., recommends placing nutrients deep in the soil to continue to provide plants with proper nutrition all season long.
