In southeastern North Dakota, the planting season has been wet. “Not many soybeans have gone in the ground,” says Shaun Nelson of Rush River Seed and Chemical. “I would stick to your plan, at least for the next week. After that, switching to an earlier maturity is an option.” With delayed planting, farmers may need to adjust their yield goals. Pioneer field agronomist Jesse Moch says that also impacts nitrogen application. “It’s probably not at 100 percent anymore. So, you need to determine how much nitrogen is out there and can it be scaled back,” says Moch. “Just make sure you’re putting down the right amount and not spending too much.” Watch the Facebook video here.
