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.
Yield estimates prior to harvest can be helpful for producers to make informed management decisions for the crop while there is time before harvest. As sorghum gets closer to maturity, yield estimates will be more accurate. Nonetheless, you can start taking yield estimations three to four weeks after flowering.
Fall forage yield is an important aspect of dual-purpose wheat production. Differences among wheat varieties play a role in forage production potential. The K-State Wheat Production Group compares the forage yield of several commonly grown wheat varieties and upcoming lines. Results from these trials are summarized in this article.
This article addresses the correlation between the amount of nitrate in the soil profile and wheat yield. Failure to account for the N present in the soil wastes a valuable resource. Soil sampling in the fall for nitrate can have a significant impact on N recommendations for winter wheat in Kansas soils.
Have you harvested your soybeans yet? The Kansas Soybean Association is calling all soybean farmers in Kansas to enter their competitive soybean crop into the Kansas Soybean Yield Contest by December 1. The statewide Kansas Soybean Value Contest, which analyzes protein, oil, and other soybean qualities, is also open for entries.
