Soybeans are amazing plants. Unlike our other major crop in Illinois, they’re not as cut and dried which is usually a good thing. Have a planter skip or early sprayer pass run over one or two plants across the row? Soybeans will bush out, add branches with extra nodes and pods, and use all those extra resources giving up no yield.

When it comes to nitrogen, soybeans keep that same approach of soaking up all of those extra resources...

Just like humans, crops are subject to stress caused by factors in their environment every day. And just like humans, if crops are stressed, they will not function and perform up to their maximum potential. In this webinar, we will gain an understanding of these factors that affect overall plant health, so that we can better understand why our crops perform the way that they do. We will also discuss plant health products that have the unique...
