A Midwestern farmer is fine-tuning his soybean growing strategy.
Western Missouri’s Cody Brock said he keeps targeting earlier soybean planting dates because of its hardiness in cool, wet soils.
Brock said he started planting soybeans in April, a week ahead of corn which is unusual for his area. But he tells Brownfield some loss from early planting could actually mean better production.
“They’ll compensate if you do end up with a thinner stand in places,” he said.
