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.
