Growing a Better Soybean Crop in a Corn-Soybean Rotation

Posted by Elese Orrell

As we have previously shown, Accomplish LM can be used to help release and mineralize nutrients in high residue fields. Given the high potassium levels in corn stover and the high potassium demand for a soybean crop, this is a perfect situation for using a residue application of Accomplish LM to improve plant performance (Figures 1-3) and gain a yield advantage in the coming soybean crop (Figure 4).

Figure 4. Soybean yield results, Wall Lake, Iowa (2008). Accomplish LM was associated with the highest yield compared to check (average yield from two check strips adjacent to the Accomplish LM-treated strip) in this trial of soybean grown on corn residue.

Residue applications can be made in the fall, winter (Accomplish LM is not temperature sensitive), or spring. By using Accomplish LM in their nutrient mineralization programs, growers can speed residue breakdown and release valuable nutrients for a top soybean yield next season.

**The recommended Accomplish LM residue treatment application is: Accomplish LM at 2 quarts/acre (+1-2 gallons of 28% or 32% UAN + 8.5 gallons of water).**
