According to the USDA NASS crop report on May 26, soybean planting was 59% complete compared to the five-year average of 73% and last year&#39;s 85%. Areas of the state will need considerable drying before fields are ready to plant. Many producers may be wondering if they need to rethink their agronomic practices such as relative maturity, row spacing, and seeding rate. The following are strategies to consider when planting soybean in June or July.</p> <p><strong>Relative Maturity</strong></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/soybean-varieties/making-plan-after-delayed-soybean-planting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/soybean-varieties/making-plan-after-delayed-soybean-planting#comments Soybean varieties Soybean Mon, 08 Jun 2015 21:30:00 +0000 79171 at http://farmindustrynews.com Harry Stine talks crop tech http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/harry-stine-talks-crop-tech <div class="node-body article-body">President and founder of Stine Seed Co. talks about genetics designed for twin-row crops.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/harry-stine-talks-crop-tech" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/harry-stine-talks-crop-tech#comments Seed Crops Sun, 15 Mar 2015 16:51:00 +0000 77461 at http://farmindustrynews.com <p>Harry Stine, president and founder of Stine Seed Co.</p> Jodie Wehrspann Survey offers consumer insights on seed, crop tech http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/survey-offers-consumer-insights-seed-crop-tech <div class="node-body gallery-body">American Seed Trade Association conducted an interesting survey that looked at consumer attitudes and got some interesting findings.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/survey-offers-consumer-insights-seed-crop-tech" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/seed/survey-offers-consumer-insights-seed-crop-tech#comments Seed Crops Thu, 12 Mar 2015 12:15:00 +0000 77411 at http://farmindustrynews.com <p>The American Seed Trade Association conducted an interesting survey late in 2014 that showed among key consumer groups it&#39;s possible to &#39;move the needle&#39; on the value of crop technology.
