    Based on my trip across the state on Saturday, it is clear harvest has started.  A couple of things to keep track of as the combines run across the fields:

    We’ve received a few pictures from around the state of green soybean pods splitting and also seed sprouting out of pods. While it is not uncommon to see pre-harvest pod shatter just prior to harvest due to re-wetting of dry pods, the pictures we’ve received have been of soybeans at the R6 growth stage.

    To estimate soybean yield, four yield components need to be considered: plants per acre, pods per plant, seeds per pod, and seeds per pound (seed size).  A printable worksheet to estimate soybean yield can be found by clicking here

    Results of the 2017 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials are now available online as sortable tables: http://www.oardc.ohio-state.edu/soy2017/

    New for 2017- A link was added to the top of each table to download the data to a spreadsheet.

    Pre-harvest and harvest loss of grain can result in significant yield reductions. Pre-harvest pod shatter (breaking of pods resulting in soybeans on the ground) can occur when dry pods are re-wetted. This year, in our trials, we’ve seen very little pre-harvest loss.

    The purpose of the Ohio Soybean Performance Trials is to evaluate soybean varieties for yield and other agronomic characteristics. This evaluation gives soybean producers comparative information for selecting the best varieties for their unique production systems.

    (Editors note: The following article is being reissued as it appeared in 2011 when we had a very wet fall. The information in it is still relevant today. Unlike 2011 we have had a nice dry fall when we can actually use tillage when it is needed to alleviate compaction, such as ruts left this summer during spraying or over the previous few years.
