Double Cropping

Sep 2021

Soybeans are one of the most flexible crops grown. They adapt well to a variety of production systems, including crop rotations and planting dates. That flexibility allows soybeans to work well as a double crop in regions with adequate growing degrees. Soybeans planted in mid-summer, often following harvest of a crop like winter wheat, can achieve reasonable yields by a late-fall harvest. These checkoff-funded tools, resources and research projects support the use of soybeans in double-crop systems.
