Adams County seemed to have plenty of rainfall this year, especially early on. Plots were planted late because it remained wet. And, 3 plots which were all planted on May 23rd just never had a good enough stand as a few days later we received nearly 2 inches of rain and got crusted in. Soybeans appeared to be stunted for most of the summer with such wet conditions. However, we did eventually dry out and have warm temps even late into the fall to extend the growing conditions. It wasn’t record breaking yields this year, but it sure was much better than I anticipated.
The Adams County Extension Service wants to thank all the agricultural cooperators for their quality work on the plots. Each year they help collect valuable yield data that is used to make variety selection decisions. Also, thanks to all the seed dealers for their resources.
