Soybean replant expected in southeast Missouri

A farmer in southeast Missouri says he’s ready for dry, warm conditions so that he can finish planting his crops.

Hudson Byrd says the moisture has been good for corn, but the standing water in fields has drowned some newly emerged soybeans.

“We will have to replant, but right now, it’s looking like 80 to 120 acres of replant. It looks like there might be another rain in the forecast on Friday or Saturday. If that rain is intense, that number could increase.”

He says the replanted soybeans probably won’t yield as well as the early planted soybeans with good emergence.

“But you can still have respectable yields.”

In the weekly crop progress report, USDA NASS says there were under 2.5 days suitable for fieldwork in the last week with average precipitation in Missouri just under 1.5 inches, above normal for this time of the year.
