Wheat Harvest + Double Crop Soybeans

Author: Steve Gauck

With wheat harvest officially underway across southern Indiana, I wanted to offer you a few tips about harvest and planting double crop soybeans.

When preparing to harvest wheat, the ideal moisture is between 14 to 20 percent. Below 14 percent moisture we start to see yield loss and we could also run the risk of a rain lowering test weight and quality. Air drying wheat will give you the best quality. For long-term storage, make sure to dry your wheat to 12.5 percent moisture.

E.Indiana and Ohio: Results of Planting Depth Study Were Quite Surprising

Author: Mark Apelt

During the past there has been much discussion and research regarding the ideal planting depth for corn. Surprisingly, there has been relatively little research done on the ideal planting depth for soybeans. If you do a web search for ideal planting depth of soybeans the results will vary from as shallow as ¾” deep to <2.5” deep. That is quite a range!
