SE Nebraska

newholland4life - 11/8/2018 09:04 My bean yields absolutely suck this year. Off about 20% and we had a good growing season. The only variable that changed was planting depth. It's my responsibility, but some operators didn't check seed depth (again my fault) and buried them 2.5-3". Stands suck and it seems the beans never got in gear. Anyone else ever see this as a big yield robber?

 

I can tell you that planting deep did not hurt the yield. If you think 40 is bad, beans here were mostly under 30 due to drought
