Excellent video on common soybean germination and emergence issues

Check out this short video on common soybean germination and emergence issues created by Dr. Shawn Conley. This is particularly useful in light of recent hail damage.

In a few minutes, Dr. Conley discusses issues arising from planting depth, soil compaction, frost and more.

Since the video is a few years old, he also explains a manual method for counting your plant stand.

Of course, you can also get a highly accurate count with the free Bean cam, available for iPhones and iPads and Android devices.
