Early planting is extremely important to maximize yield, but it also takes greater management. Over the last three growing seasons, soybean planting has started earlier and occurred more rapidly in Iowa than ever before. The last three years also have been three of the highest yielding years in state history. The problem is that too many farmers are still planting their soybean way too late.
