 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: cover and forage crops, farm crops, legumes

Soybean seed quality is very important for crop establishment. In general, seed quality is an indicator of a seed's ability to produce a seedling in field conditions and includes both seed germination and seed vigor. Most producers are familiar with seed germination since they have seen it on a seed tag. Fewer are familiar with seed vigor.

ID-234
Grain Sorghum (Milo) Production in Kentucky
2/8/2016 (new)

 UK Authors: Carl Bradley, Doug Johnson,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, Entomology,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, small grains

Grain sorghum can be used for a variety of purposes including animal feed, unleavened breads, cakes, wallboard, starch, dextrose, brooms, ethanol, high quality wax, and alcoholic beverages. Grain sorghum produced in Kentucky is most commonly used for animal feed and was first grown here in the 1920s. Although acreage in Kentucky has fluctuated considerably over the years, yields have generally exceeded the national average since the 1970s, indicating that grain sorghum is an option for producers interested in diversifying grain crop operations.

PPFS-AG-R-1
Winter Decline Syndrome of Canola
9/1/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: Don Hershman, Carrie Knott
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences, Plant Pathology
 Series: Canola Disease: Plant Pathology Factsheet (PPFS-AG-R series)
 Tags: plant diseases

Interest in producing canola in Kentucky has greatly increased in recent years. Many farming operations wish to diversify their production systems with different row crops that require little to no additional equipment or infrastructure costs; canola is such a crop. Additionally, newer canola cultivars have improved agronomic traits, including winter hardiness. Lastly, more stable markets in Kentucky have greatly increased the profitability of canola.

AGR-213
Soybean Nutrient Management in Kentucky
4/24/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: John Grove, Carrie Knott, Chad Lee
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, nutrient management<

Soybean grows best on fertile soils. For decades, the University of Kentucky has conducted field studies to establish the relationship between soil nutrient supplies and soybean yield. Adequate soil fertility must be present so that yields are not limited.

AGR-129
Soybean Variety Selection
3/20/2014 (major revision)

 UK Authors: Carrie Knott, Chad Lee, Edwin R
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, soybeans

Soybean variety selection is one of the most important and most difficult management decisions a producer must make each year. It takes careful identification of the problems and needs of the production system. When done properly it increases the chance the variety will reach its full yield potential while eliminating costs for unnecessary traits, resulting in highly profitable returns.
