Soybean Yield Potential – It’s been an interesting (but not necessarily a good) year trying to get the crop planted in NW Iowa.  For corn, as mentioned in my last edition, the Corn Replant Checklist might be of help to you. Here are a couple of soybean tables on the effect of planting date on yield potential and on the yield potential of different populations from a 2014 article by Mark Licht, ISU Extension Cropping Systems Agronomist, titled “Early Season Soybean Replant Decisions” that might be of help in making decisions.

The first step in having safe leftovers is to cook the food safely.  Cook the food to the proper  temperature by using a food thermometer.  Bacteria grows rapidly in the temperature danger zone, (40◦F to 140◦F), so be sure your leftovers are safe.
