Join us for the Michigan State University Extension Field Crops Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Thursday, April 1, 2021, when I’ll present the latest recommendations for minimizing risk and maximizing yields when planting soybeans early. Specific topics will include ultra-early soybean planting, planting depth, seed treatment, variety selection, planting rate and assessing emerged stands. I will also be available to answer questions from participants. MSU agricultural climatologist, Jeff Andresen, will provide the weekly weather update following my presentation.
