NCSRP Research Director: "Earlier Planting can Increase Soybean Yields"
Date:2/25/2009

With the price of soybean seed skyrocketing, soybean growers are looking for "the sweet spot" - the ideal combination of planting date and seeding rate. The research and education director of the North Central Soybean Research Program offers suggestions to help growers maximize soybean yield and profit potential in 2009.

Urbandale, Iowa (PRWEB) February 25, 2009 -- Optimal soybean planting dates vary from year to year with the weather. "In general, however, research is showing us that planting earlier can help increase yield - provided your seedbed is in good shape," says Dr. David Wright, Director of Research for the North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP).

Three decades of planting date studies in Iowa show that the most favorable planting time for soybeans is from the last week of April through mid-May. Similarly, Illinois planting date studies suggest that planting the last week of April isn't too early, and that there's not much yield loss expected if you can't plant until mid-May.

A two-year Wisconsin Soybean Planting Date Study shows an average yield loss of 0.4 bushels per acre per day when soybean planting is delayed past the first week in May. And a seven-year seed company study at multiple locations throughout the Northern and Central Corn Belt also shows that yield is maximized when soybeans are planted from mid-April through mid-May.

A good seedbed is key

Wright cautions growers not to overlook the importance of a good seedbed if you're planning to plant early. "Little is gained from pushing yo
