Michigan farmers are finally starting to see soil temperatures warm up enough for germination.
Soil fertility specialist Kurt Steinke with Michigan State University tells Brownfield …
“The soil temperatures have remained well below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and because they’re below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s very difficult to get that seed to germinate in a timely fashion,” he explains.
Steinke says soybeans will be less responsive to starter fertilizer if they are quickly getting out of the ground.
