Soybean producers whose crops suffer poor stand emergencemay wonder whether or not replanting presents a viable economic alternative. Sometimes growers elect to replant deficient stands, but doing so can add considerable expense to their operations through the costs for seed, tillage operations, and perhaps even herbicides. The grower's economic risk is compounded by the possible loss in potential yield due to late seeding, which eventually leads to a reduction in net profit. Making the decision to either replant or stick with a somewhat deficient field is difficult.
The information in this circular is intended to help growers decide which course of action will present them with the best economic return.
