Drill-seeding of soybean

  • 1. Donau Soja


Farmers are very familiar with the conventional seed drill for sowing cereals. This practice note outlines how this standard farm equipment can be also successfully used in soybean production.

Good crop establishment is the key to high soybean yields. Practical experience has shown that drill seeders are suitable for achieving high yields. Drill seeders sow in narrow rows which contribute to an early canopy closure which increases the competitiveness of the crop against weeds and reduces the risk of soil erosion.
