Soybean fertilizer management: IDC, sulfur, P and K soil tests, and more

In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, we’re talking about soybean fertilizer management. What should farmers who are growing soybeans this year be thinking about, including IDC concerns from last year? What does new research tell us about soybean and sulfur? Are there other nutrients or practices that you do or don't suggest for soybean based on current research? What tips do you have for Minnesota soybean growers looking to increase yield?

  • Jeff Vetsch, U of M researcher (Waseca)
