VIDEO: What’s the right depth for seeding soybeans?

Some soybean growers in Manitoba have been pushing at either end of the range of acceptable seed depth when planting. Should you vary your soybean planting depth depending on the prevailing conditions at time of planting?

Farm production advisor Dennis Lange, of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives’ GO centre at Altona, considered that topic among others at the Crop Diagnostic School, in this seventh of a series of nine videos hosted for the Manitoba Co-operator by Crops Guide editor Gord Gilmour.

MAFRI and the University of Manitoba host the Crop Diagnostic School each year at the U of M’s Ian M. Morrison Research Farm at Carman. Farmers and agronomists can attend the one-day hands-on school, which runs for two weeks in July. Watch this site for more video highlights. Time: 0:32.
