The Agronomists, Ep 143: Starting off soybeans with Horst Bohner and Mike Weir


Soybean prices aren’t the shiny prize they were a year or so ago, and that has plenty of farmers sharpening the pencil on cropping plans.

If input dollars are scarce (and they always are), where do you spend and where to do you save? For that conversation, when it comes to the most important pass, host of The Agronomists Lyndsey Smith goes to Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs soybean specialist Horst Bohner and Pioneer Seeds Canada agronomist Mike Weir.

From choosing plant population, to row spacing and disease considerations, and on to tillage, seed depth, nitrogen, and how early is too early, check out this lively discussion on starting off soybeans!
