This year, many soybean growers would like to save their own seed to cut production costs due to the low soybean prices. Before using the bin-run seed, you should make sure the seed quality is good to avoid stand establishment problems that are caused by seedborne diseases. Several seedborne diseases were prevalent in the 1998 growing season and the use of pathogen-infected seed may have caused the stand establishment problems.
