Agronomic Advantages of Maintaining Moderate to High Seeding Rates

SHARE

Tips from DuPont Pioneer

  • Thicker seeding rates can enhance plant and pod height, which is especially important on sandy soils or with late-planted soybeans that tend to have shorter plants.
  • Higher seeding rates can provide a buffer against the need to replant due to light to moderate stand reduction events such as hail.
  • Higher seeding rates enable quicker canopy closure, which can be a benefit in drought- and/or heat-prone environments. High levels of heat reflected from the soil surface can reduce early vegetative growth.
  • Quicker canopy closure due to higher seeding rates can also benefit in weed control strategies by providing shade to slow down or inhibit weed emergence and early growth
