Soybean growers in Western Canada and the Northern U.S. have been up early over the last few mornings checking how low temperatures dropped overnight. The thermometer has dipped below the freezing mark in some areas, with damage to soybeans depending on a number of factors, including maturity.
As part of this Soybean School West episode, Kristen Podolsky, production specialist with the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association, compares soybeans at three different stages and explains how to determine whether they are still vulnerable to frost. She also explains what to look for in assessing soybeans after frost and how to manage beans that got too cold too early.
