Soybean School: Making the After-Frost Replant Call

Episodes:

Soybeans can handle slightly colder temps than corn, but their exposed growing point means that frost damage can be far deadlier and permanent.

That seems to be the case across much of Ontario, as farmers head to the fields to assess the full fallout of Saturday morning’s hard frost.

In this Soybean School episode, PRIDE Seeds’ Ken Currah takes us down a row of soybeans hit by frost to look at the variable damage and potential outcomes for each plant.

The ultimate question — do you replant? — comes down to several factors, and Currah runs through the difficult decision. It’s dry, it’s late May, and without a shot of rain it’s going to take another few days to really assess the full impact of this frost event. Watch the video below for further advice on the re-plant question.
