Do you need to replant?

Extension educators say there are several factors to consider before replanting damaged soybean fields.

Shawn Conley with the University of Wisconsin says research suggests early planting of soybeans should take place between April 10th and April 24th in the North Central Region.

“Unless there’s some pretty significant damage, we really strongly encourage farmers to plant into an existing stand,” he recommends.  “Those 40,000 plants would have a higher yield potential because they’re planting planted anywhere from a week to 2 weeks earlier.”

Laura Lindsey with Ohio State University says there’s also a yield tradeoff between planting corn or soybeans after about April 20th.
