This is Purdue Crop Chat, a regular podcast from Hoosier Ag Today and the Purdue University Extension Service, featuring Purdue Extension soybean specialist Dr. Shaun Casteel and Extension Corn Specialist Dr. Dan Quinn. On this episode, Shaun and Dan discuss how corn is no longer king in Indiana or the US after USDA’s Prospective Plantings report last week showed that farmers will plant more soybean acres than corn, and tips for those planting beans on beans. Also, with some farmers already hitting the field (maybe to get their neighbors all riled up), how early is too early to plant?
The Purdue Crop Chat is made possible by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana Soybean Alliance. Your Indiana corn and soybean checkoff investments yesterday are paying off today. New research, new uses, demand creation — bringing dollars back to the farm. Check it out at YourCheckoff.org.
