Thinking about planting soybeans 2 years in a row? According to AgWeb and University of Wisconsin Extension researchers, this is not a recommended practice. However, if farmers choose this route, here are 7 tips they should adopt:

  1. Switch up your varieties and choose strong disease resistance traits to match already known problems in your field
  2. Test for soybean cyst nematode (SCN) and choose SCN-resistant varieties – SCN thrives in multi-year soybean rotations
  3. Scout fields earlier and more intensely to stay ahead of disease problems
  4. Lower seeding rates in fields where white mold has been a problem
  5. Maximize the fungicide rates of your seed treatments
  6. Use a pre-emergence herbicide, and multiple modes of action
  7. Sample soil, and replace potassium if needed
