The soys in this video were IP's. They were a Hyland Seed variety named Sherwin rated at 2950 hu. These soys were planted, sprayed within a 4 day period and had about 1 1/2 inches of rain on them. They were out of the ground 4 days after planting. We sprayed these soys with Sencor. pursuit and valterra pre emerge. This spray combo was amazing, a little costly at around $52/acre but the result was excellent. Our final yield is 57.8 bu /acre. We normally get on avg 45 to 48 bu/ac. This was an exceptional year for IP's in our area. We seeded our Hard Red and the field looks good, nice and green with just enough top growth. Here is hoping for a good winter wheat crop.

Cheers
