The frequent and heavy rain events occurring this spring have caused serious planting delays. As a result, many Michigan soybean fields will be planted in mid-June and some will be planted in late-June. Due to the shortened growing season, producers need to implement specific management practices to maximize the yield potential and mitigate the risks in these fields.

Mike Staton, Michigan State University Extension soybean educator, will discuss the most recent recommendations for maximizing the yield potential, mitigating risks and minimizing the input costs for late-planted soybeans during the next MSU Extension Field Crop Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on June 13, 2019, via Zoom. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the meeting. Jeff Andresen, MSU’s agricultural meteorologist, will also provide an updated outlook for weather during the next two weeks.
