A few key environmental and agronomic factors converged in the 2012 crop that led to some surprising and even outstanding soybean yields. Of course, there were areas that suffered from dry weather, but there were also some areas that achieved yields in the 80 bushel range — some small plots even topped 100 bushels an acre, to the surprise of many.
In this episode of the Soybean School, Horst Bohner, soybean specialist with OMAFRA, discusses some significant yield differences between short- and long-season bean yields, as well as how pest type and pressure affected yield potential in such a moisture-light season.
