I have been getting out in the field with my hula hoop this week checking the stands in some soybean fields where there is a lot of cover crop residue. Because of all the recent rains and the residue, there seems to be some real variation in the populations, especially in areas where water ponded for any length of time.

I know that many of you are getting beans planted for the first time but if you had beans planted ahead of all the rain that we’ve had or even some of the rain that we just had in the last week, it would be a good time to evaluate those stands.
