Don’t Let Difficult Planting Conditions Affect Your Bottom Line

August 16, 2022

With delayed planting due to unpredictable weather conditions across much of the Midwest, many growers were forced to plant in unfavorable conditions this season. In some areas, poor early-season conditions caused difficulty in herbicide activation and stand establishment. And soybeans without a solid seed treatment got off to a slow start, had reduced populations and were more vulnerable to disease later in the season. While we don’t know what Mother Nature will throw at us next year, consider how you can best protect your seed investment and help your crop reach its full yield potential in 2023.

A strong start at emergence can help set soybeans up for success as the season progresses. As the first line of defense against early-season pests and diseases, choosing the right seed treatment is essential to establishing your crop and protecting yield potential. Knowing every season is unpredictable, it’s important to know your seed treatment will help your soybeans emerge strong no matter the weather.

Listen to Agronomy Service Representative Kevin Scholl discuss the differences he saw in emergence at the Dixon, IL, Grow More™ Experience site.
