Everyone likes to talk yield, but that’s just table stakes. Defense is what helps you avoid a disaster. Here are some things to keep in mind.
Watch for varieties with RKN (root knot nematode) protection in the south. In the north, the PI88.788 source of SCN (soybean cyst nematode) resistance is starting to be less effective. The Peking source is beginning to yield well enough to warrant use as a replacement.
This is one of the most overlooked characteristics in soybeans. We watch this closely and pick soybean varieties for you that will stand in most conditions. It improves harvestability and lessens disease pressure from things like sclerotinia white mold. Of course, having base saturation potassium levels over 4% (and preferably over 6%) makes an enormous difference, too.
Whether you are looking for improvements in tolerance to SDS (Sudden Death Syndrome), IDC, SCN, or specific diseases, we have soybeans that can help you. Of course, our Hefty Complete Soybean Seed Treatment provides a big boost, as well.
