Dry weather
helps soybeans
come out
quickly
By Wendy Sweeter
Dry conditions helped soybean growers
get the beans out of the fields this fall
quicker than normal.
DEKALB Asgrow technical agronomist
Jeff Fuls said more than 90 percent of the
soybean acres in South Dakota had been
harvested by mid-October. According to
USDA-NASS, the average soybean harvest at
the same time is 60 percent.
“Harvest went very smooth this year, very
dry. Toward the end, we were sneaking down
to the low 9s. Everything combined nicely,”
Fuls said.
He noted soybean yields varied throughout
the state. Areas that were able to get some
timely rains saw yields up to the 60s.
“Yields were variable, but I think for the
most part better than most people expected.
I think their expectations on soybean yield
were lower than what reality hit us with,” he
said. “That was good news.”
Weed control this year was a little harder
with an early planting date in late April
and early May. The early planting date
made controlling weeds late in the season
harder. Eastern South Dakota growers saw
waterhemp as the main issue, while growers
further west saw kochia and marestail issues.
“Those are some weed battles we had to
fight harder than the previous year when we
got planted late and didn’t see as much,” he
said.
With more than 50 trials in South Dakota,
Fuls reported excellent performance from
new Asgrow XtendFlex soybeans. He was
happy to see the yields.
Fuls likes the disease control they are
seeing with the brand’s germplasm,
like phytophthora, white mold and iron
deficiency chlorosis.
“Agronomically we’re really happy with
the tolerance to the diseases we typically
see in South Dakota,” Fuls said. “Asgrow
XtendFlex germplasm looks very good. We
could use the added glufosinate tolerance
late season to take care of some of those
waterhemp or late-season weed issues.”
Asgrow XtendFlex soybeans have been
approved for sale in 2021.
