Soybean Seed Treatments

Soybean Seed Treatments: Questions that Emerge When Soybean Plants Don’t.

Poor soybean stand establishment is frustrating, especially considering all the time and money spent on seed, planting, and maintaining fields.

 

This is particularly true when farmers have also invested in seed treatments designed to prevent crop loss due to seedling diseases. However, every product has limitations and may not always work the way it is intended. Conversely, a user may expect a product to work in a way in which it was not intended. In this publication, we answer some common questions that emerge when soybean plants don’t! 2016
