Strategies to Manage Double-Crop Challenges

2016 Soybean Summit - Effingham, Illinois
John Pike, University of Illinois

Although weather is generally the major factor determining successes and failures with double-crop soybean production, having a good strategy to address other manageable production variables is essential to maximize profitability for the wheat/double-crop soybean rotation.   This presentation examines research findings along with sound agronomic principles related to soil fertility, fungicide applications, varietal maturity, equipment considerations and other issues to better manage challenges associated with double-crop soybean production.
