ISA is at the forefront of an initiative exploring wheat-soybean double-cropping through research, double-crop posts on our ILSoyAdvisor blog, demonstration plots at the Farm Progress show and much more.

 

Double-Crop Commodity Classic Resources

ISA hosted a roundtable March 3, 2017, at Commodity Classic in San Antonio, TX, to review what the Mid-Atlantic, Mississippi River Delta, Ohio River, and High Plains regions have accomplished in the past year, what the United Soybean Board project accomplished and the next steps of the Double-Crop Initiative moving forward. This conference brought together industry experts from across the U.S. to discuss double-crop research results, program profitability and management techniques.

Double-Cropping Best Management Practices

Double-cropping soybeans after wheat can be profitable. Winter wheat serves as a cover crop over winter and an early cash crop in summer. Planting soybeans provides a second cash crop in the fall of the same year. Better management practices can improve soybean yields and profitability without reducing wheat yields.
