Members of the ETS team are frequent guests on the Ag Ph. D. Radio show. The following episode is related to the topic of Fertilizing Soybeans.
Placement of fertilizer with a strip till machine is the first topic that Eric Moore discusses on this episode of the Ag Ph.D. Radio show. Eric says, “In order to increase yield on soybeans they need to be planted earlier in order to get more nodes to get more pods”. Since it is earlier in the year the soil is usually colder, but with strip-till there is a warmer strip to plant into and the warmer soil influences nutrient availability. Eric also touches on use of nitrogen on soybeans because if there is not enough nitrogen that can hinder nodule development.
