Farmer says soybeans are variable but he’s hopeful
Northeast Arkansas farmer Brad Doyle says his soybeans are variable after a late start to the planting season.
“So we have soybeans that are everything from full canopy, full bloom, and early pod set to pre-bloom at less than a foot tall,” he says. “We have all growth stages.”
He tells Brownfield he has high hopes for early planted soybeans.
“We’re still at least a month out from the first harvest, but it will be all over the board,” he says. “As far as average, we might hit our average— I would expect to.”
Doyle, secretary of the American Soybean Association, grows soybeans, rice, and wheat in Poinsett County.
