Prevent Plant and Late Planting Decisions

Although much progress has been made, there are still fields farmers have not been able to plant yet, or areas that may need to be replanted. In this week’s episode, Dave Bau, Extension Educator in Ag Business Management, highlights the Delayed Planting and Replanting Evaluator, a tool to aid in the decision of whether or not to plant a crop yet, take prevent plant, or replant. Farmers can customize results by using expenses from their own operation. Dr. Seth Naeve, Extension Soybean Specialist, also discusses caveats around the June 10 date to switch soybean maturities, and how best management practices are still recommended even when planting late. With crop development behind, keep an eye on rotational restrictions on herbicide labels, and note the looming June 12 cutoff date for dicamba products labeled for use on dicamba-tolerant soybeans south of I-94 in MN.
