Excellent discussion on soybean planting. In my own case, I don’t like early planting of soybeans. I don’t see much upside to that, especially planting in April. Also too, most soybeans in Southwestern Ontario are planted using bin run seed, and many seed treatments aren’t available for that soybean seed. So I like to plant soybeans when its hot, typically the middle of May, or later. Last year I had one of my highest yields ever, with all my soybeans going into the ground in June.
