Farmers start to make late planting adjustments

A soybean and small grains agronomist says the number one factor in loss of soybean yield is late planting date.

Ohio State University’s Laura Lindsey says about 12 percent of the state’s soybeans still need to be planted.

“As we enter, into more mid June, now we can see some fairly large yield reductions,” she says. “We’ve seen as much as 1/2 bushel to one bushel per acre per day loss in soybean yield.”

She tells Brownfield adjustments may need to be made.
