CropStop: What’s Wrong With These Soybeans In Southeast North Dakota?

On a recent trip into southeast North Dakota, central and southern South Dakota, and central Minnesota, Agweek’s intrepid CropStop correspondent picked up some reports from farmers about a post-drought effect of 2012 corn chemistry on 2013 soybeans. Look closely at the photo above, of a farmer from LaMoure County, N.D. Especially note the size of the soybean row that the farmer is in, which he says were planted more directly on top of where 2012 corn rows were. For details on this, and whether experts think it is a widespread phenomenon, see the Aug. 5 issue of Agweek.
