Managing soybean symbionts to boost yields

An agronomist for crop science company Verdesian says adding a bacteria to soybean fields yearly can help growers increase production to match growing biofuel and renewable diesel demand.

“This relationship has existed for thousands of years,” said Kurt Seever. “It will always work.”

Seever tells Brownfield meeting the growing soybean demand might push more farmers to plant continual soybeans which could impact a key group of bacteria microorganisms called rhizobia (rye-zo-be-uh).
