Expert says soybeans need consistent rains until harvest

An agronomist says soybeans have done okay considering the dry conditions, but the crop is going to need more rain from now until harvest. 

Shawn Conley with the University of Wisconsin Soybean Program tells Brownfield soybean stands look okay in early planted fields and, “We’ve been okay in terms of rainfall. You know, the soybean doesn’t need a ton of rain until about now, so for a roughly R-3, which should be next week forward, now is where we need that inch, inch-and-a-half of rain every week all the way through to the mid part of September to make the soybean crop.”

Conley says the dry early season has led to less plant growth, but there’s still potential for a good crop.
