For optimal yields on mineral soils with subsoil pH greater than 6.0 (generally western Ohio), the pH range should be maintained between 6.0 and 6.8. On mineral soils with subsoil pH less than 6.0 (generally Eastern Ohio), the range should be higher (6.5 ...

Sometimes, plant stands are reduced by disease, herbicide injury, hail, insects and flooding. If crop insurance covers the damage, consult the insurance agent before taking action. When all plants of a field are lost, it is realistic to replant if adequat ...
Late planting reduces the cultural practice options for row spacing, seeding rate, and variety maturity. The row spacing for June planting should be no greater than 7.5 inches. Appropriate seeding rates for the first half of June are about 200,000 to 225, ...
The date of planting has more effect on soybean grain yield than any other production practice. The results of a two-year planting date study conducted in Clark County, Ohio are shown in Figure 5-2. Yield loss resulting from delayed planting ranges from 1 ...

Tillage disrupts soil aggregates, and repeated disruption destroys soil structure. It also causes a long-term decline in soil organic matter, which further destabilizes soil structure. Tillage disrupts the continuity of large soil pores and restricts the ...
Crop rotation is the most effective pest control practice available to crop producers. The sequence of crops grown in a field affects the productivity of each crop. Research from most Midwest states indicate that a soybean crop following a crop other than ...
