Southeast soybean growers have ‘once in a blue moon’ opportunity this season | Soybeans content from Southeast Farm Press

Southeast soybean growers have ‘once in a blue moon’ opportunity this season | Soybeans content from Southeast Farm Press | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
Soybean growers in the Carolina’s and Virginia have more than two million acres of beans planted this year, much of the acreage in a late-planted, double-crop combination with wheat, barley, oats and a few other winter season crops.

 

“We do not recommend spraying soybeans with a fungicide to control Asian Soybean Rust if they are not yet blooming, if they are blooming, but rust has not been confirmed within 100 miles, or if full sized seeds are present in the top of the plant (stage R6),” says North Carolina State University Soybean Specialist Jim Dunphy.
