We asked, “What will you plant first this year?” It’s almost split down the middle with nearly 53% saying corn before soybeans. Jeff, why soybeans first?

“We’re just trying to get them growing early, fast. Corn is more sensitive to colder temperature as far as holding it back, where soybeans, if you can get them out of the ground, the more they’re growing, the more nodes they’re going to put off. So, I want them growing as soon as possible.”

76% of no-tillers who responded to our question on Facebook, said they’re planting corn first. Akron, Ind., no-tiller Jason Harrold, no relation to Jeff, says he’s planting corn first because his farm going to corn will dry out faster than his farm going to soybeans.
