Soybean planting ahead of average in Wisconsin

Shawn Conley

The Wisconsin Soybean Program’s director says soybean planting in his state is far ahead of average.  Shawn Conley with the University of Wisconsin tells Brownfield this is an unusual planting period. “Soybean acres are actually the most planted by this time of year than we’ve ever seen in the State of Wisconsin, which is pretty weird, based on the weather we’ve had the last two weeks. That’s because a lot of acres went in that second week and third week in April before we got cold and wet.”

But he says that weather has also delayed emergence for many farmers, and for his research plots.
