Yield advantage in early planting can be a toss up

A soybean researcher says early planting benefits are not always absolute.

Mark Seamon with the Michigan Soybean Committee tells Brownfield on-farm trials continue to find varying yield benefits to early planting.

“It gave us about 1.6 bushels yield benefits and that was interesting because there was a range of yield difference from a negative 6.5 bushels in one case to the most positive benefit with 8.9 bushels per acre,” he shares.
