Soybean Seeding Rates

As you begin the farm budgeting for the crop 2013 inputs, I would suggest a review of your current seeding rates for soybeans.  After examining the current data, I would suggest planting one bag of soybean seed per acre, unless planting is occurring quite late.

                                                        Suggested Seeding Rate______________________________

   Row Width (In)_    Seeds per Acre      Seeds per Foot of Row       Distance Between Seeds (In)

            30                         130,000                         7.46                                               1.6

            15                         130,000                         3.73                                               3.2
