The Prospective Plantings Report by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), Agricultural Statistics Board, U.S. Department of Agriculture was released on March 31, 2008. Iowa corn acreage in 2008 is expected to be 1 million acres less than in 2007 and it appears that this, along with other ground (CRP, hay and small grains), is being directly switched over to soybean (increase of 1.25 million). With the increase in soybean acres do we need to inoculate our soybean seed when planted on some of the “new” soybean acres? It depends.
