Rate of dry down in sorghum before harvest

What factors affect the rate of dry down in grain sorghum? This is a question on the minds of many producers as harvest draws closer and temperatures drops. Find out more in this article from KSU CROPS.

Understanding soybean seed filling: Contribution to yield

There is still quite a bit of yield to be defined for soybeans in the next month. With most of the crop entering seed filling, weather conditions will be critical with respect to final seed weights.

Learn about the rate of dry down in corn before harvest

As the end of the growing season arrives in Kansas, a common question from growers relates to the dry down for corn. This rate depends on the weather, primarily temperature and moisture conditions. Learn more in this article from Dr. Ciampitti.

Soybean seed filling and dry down rate before harvest

This article offers a closer look at the seed-filling process of soybeans. Environmental conditions in the coming days will play a critical role in seed filling and determining final seed weight. Another important process is the dry down rate of soybeans after reaching final maturity. Learn more about this process in this article.

Rate of dry down in sorghum before harvest

In recent years, a common question from producers is related to the dry down rate for sorghum when approaching the end of the season. The dry down process can be delayed by low temperatures, high humidity, and high grain moisture content at black layer. Learn more in this article from KSU farming systems specialist, Ignacio Ciampitti.

Soybean seed filling and dry down rate before harvest

The weather conditions expected for the last half of September will be critical for soybeans as related to seed filling and determining final seed weight. Final maturity is defined as the formation of the black layer in the seeds. The dry-down rate will depend on the maturity group, planting date, and weather conditions experienced during the latter part of the reproductive phase.

Rate of dry down in sorghum before harvest

A common question from producers is related to the dry down rate for sorghum when approaching the end of the season. Based on previous information, the average dry down rate depends on the weather, primarily temperature and moisture conditions. This article looks at some recent studies and what factors play the biggest role in the dry down rate.
