    Effects of two tillage systems on the agronomic performance of corn and soybean. The early stand count was taken at the V4 growth stage. Harvest population was measured a few days before harvesting. Corn was planted at 34, seeds/acre and soybean at , seeds/acre. Figure 1. The tillage systems used in the corn and soybean trials. Left. Soybeans Improved seeding equipment and effective, less-costly herbicides enable growers to use reduced tillage for soybean production. Planting directly into wheat stubble or into a stale seedbed saves time, conserves moisture and can provide higher soybean yields. Proper soybean planting depth is vital. Varying soil moisture, soil.

      A University of Illinois soybean- and corn-planting date study from to reveals soybeans can reach almost % of their yield potential if planted by April Objective: Determine and document the effect of strip tillage on the profitability of irrigated corn after corn crop production. Summary: Strip-tillage increased the grain yield of irrigated corn (corn after corn) but did not increase yield in corn after dryland soybeans or corn after dryland corn.

    Progress 12/01/99 to 12/31/03 Outputs Herbicides applied preemergence to soil reduced weed densities in soybean by as much as 90%, and weeds reached the ideal treatment stage three to five days later when compared with no soil treatment. In glyphosate-resistant soybean, a single glyphosate application was needed following a soil herbicide, whereas multiple applications of glyphosate were. Glyphosate applied in Roundup Ready corn, soybean, canola and sugar beet will control in-season infestations of most all grass and broadleaf plants, regardless of how effective the weed control was in the fall and early spring. Combining tillage with herbicides improves control of perennial species.

RETURNS TO CORN AND SOYBEAN TILLAGE PRACTICES Michael Duffy/Michael Hanthorn Introduction This report compares input costs and returns for U.S.

These additional fuel costs for tillage operations, in addition to other input costs, make no-tillage, a far better choice given the insignificant soybean yield differences across all tillage. cost-benefit of conservation management practices on sediment reduction under a corn–soy-bean rotation.

The experimental site was ha ( ac) and located within the Four Mile Creek watershed in eastern Iowa. Management practices consisted of tillage with a mold-board plow with a row cropped system of corn and soybeans. There may be some challenges in managing corn residue, but simple modification of the planter by including residue cleaners and other residue management attachments are far more cost effective than the expenses associated with conventional tillage.

Figure 1. (A) Soybean yields and (B) net return averaged over the three years from in. Incash costs accounted for 46 percent of the total cost of production for corn, other nonland costs were 29 percent, and land costs were 25 percent.

The average corn yield for all combined areas of the state was bushels per acre resulting in a total cost of production. The production systems included tillage with no cover crop, tillage with a mowed and incorporated cover crop, and no-till with a crimped cover crop in a wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)–corn (Zea.

USDA has estimated annual production costs and returns and published accounts for major field crop and livestock enterprises since Cost and return estimates are reported for the United States and major production regions for corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, grain sorghum, rice, peanuts, oats, barley, milk, hogs, and cow-calf.

These cost and return accounts are "historical" accounts based. Incash costs accounted for 46 percent of the total cost of production for corn, other nonland costs were 29 percent, and land costs were 25 percent. The average corn yield for all combined areas of the state was bushels per acre resulting in a total cost of production of $ per bushel.

The average corn yield was the highest on record. Soybean market prices for the marketing year are projected to be below the breakeven price when land costs are included. The following is a list of recommendations from Michigan State University Extension for reducing soybean production costs without.

mary tillage (plow, disk, chisel, subsoil, ridge-till, and no-till) and (rotation) on grain yield of both corn and soybean in the rotated and continuous corn and soybean production under rainfed Corn Belt vary considerably. Planting corn and soybean conditions over 16 yr in southeastern Nebraska.

Similar to corn yields, the no-till treatment produced the highest average soybean yield in both experiments (), yielding best in three of eight years in the Nine Tillage Study and five of eight years in the Alternating Tillage highest yield for any treatment over the course of the experiment was 62 bu/a in the Nine Tillage Study (fall chisel, ) and 65 bu/a in the Alternating.

Soybean production relies more on glyphosate than does corn production. While more herbi - cide active ingredient was applied to corn than to soybeans, herbicides other than glyphosate accounted for most of the herbicide applied to corn acres.

In addition, tillage, which controls weeds. Crop Talk: Soybean tillage and rotation yields. Though the tillage system doesn't seem to affect yields, the crop rotation does, Al-Kaisi adds.

The differences aren't enormous -- ranging from 3 to 6 bushels per acre higher for corn-corn-soybean rotations over corn-soybean rotations -- but are enough to consider when making acreage decisions.

Corn prices would need to be above these levels to favor rotation corn. If the soybean price is $9 per bushel in the fall ofcorn prices would need to be above $ on low-productivity land, $ on average-productivity land and $ on high-productivity land for rotation corn to compare favorably to soybeans.

Revised corn and soybean budgets are available in the management section of farmdoc (here). The major revision was to commodity prices. A $ per bushel corn price and $ per bushel price are now used in budgets, closely matching current fall delivery bids. Those prices are higher than in the July release.

Still, the revised budgets suggest low returns and soybeans still. Organic corn production has some challenges: maintaining a diverse crop rotation, developing a balanced, sustainable, low cost fertility plan and mastering the art of mechanical weed control, but based on some of the farmers I visited with, you should be able to produce corn that yields from 80% to % of conventional production.

The higher the soybean-corn ratio, the more attractive soybeans are to grow. The lower the ratio, the more attractive corn is to grown. The dividing point between soybeans and corn is a ratio value of around or (The ratio is sometimes expressed as the.

Our reports and analysis on growing, harvesting and marketing commodity crops, including corn, soybeans and wheat will help your farm business thrive. A RM corn product and a MG soybean product were used in the trial. The corn trial was on 60 x ft long plots.

The soybean trial was on 60 x ft long plots. The trial was planted in inch row spacing with two replications. Conventional tillage consisted of a chisel plow followed by a soil finisher.

Research indicates that 3 inches of water are saved in the soil profile when weeds are controlled in a timely manner after the winter wheat harvest. Each inch of soil water increases the yield of corn or grain sorghum by approximately 12 bushels.Provides cost-effective fertilizer recommendations for wheat production.
