Considering some of the conditions during planting last year, the provincial average yield for soybeans was fairly impressive. If we can get 45 bushels last year, what is the real long term potential of soybean yields? What factors can we look at to bump those yields even higher.

In the first episode of the Soybean School, we talk to OMAFRA Soybean Specialist Horst Bohner about yield potential for soybeans in Ontario. We asked Horst about some of the key factors that influence yields and if he thinks we will see 100 bushels or even 150 bushels in Ontario in the future?
