Soybeans Yield Well in Arkansas Despite Drought Conditions
McGehee, AR: For growers in southeast Arkansas, where hot, dry conditions are the norm, finding soybean varieties with the right genetics to withstand drought-prone weather can be a real game-maker. Layne Miles found his solution in NK® Soybeans.
Particularly fond of NK Soybeans S47-K5 brand, Miles said he has seen the variety outperform and outyield the competition season after season.
“I absolutely love my S47-K5s,” he said. “It has stood out each year we’ve had it.”
Miles knew he had to try NK Soybeans on his own land after seeing his father hit up to 90 bu/A with them several years in a row. The average for the region is generally around 75-80 bu/A, and his whole field average this season was right on par. At some points, his monitor showed NK Soybeans S47-K5 brand yields reach as high as 100 bu/A in some locations.
“The No. 1 important thing to me is yield,” Miles said. “That’s how a farm makes it.”
