In your opinion planting soybeans should start soon after corn if not the same time due to soil condition being ready. We are in central il mclean county, a little corn on corn but with market price shifting toward more soybean acres. Is it worth it to pruchase another small planter to start planting soybeans early. Will we see a enough profitability over a five year average to see a ROI? And what kind of tillage should we use when doing this due to colder wetter soils more than likely, we are primaraly conventional tillage. Always treat our beans and plant at 140K, what seeding rate should we use. We have had good yeilds on an average past couple years just interested in increasing yields.
