1999 Organic Soybean Production Budget

Published Feb 12, 2001

The soybeans started out very well; but foxtail came in later. I thought they looked very poor at our field day in late summer. But the experts thought they would make 30 bushels per acre and they were right. Vinton 81 soybeans normally yield 10-15 bushels less than conventional soybeans, but command the highest price. Most organic farmers consider 30 bushels per acre a fairly good yield for Vinton 81.
