Will you take prevented planting acres for soybeans this year?

We asked you about corn a couple weeks ago, and now we want to know about soybeans. With the continuing rain and flooding and farmers not being able to STILL get into the field for planting, will you take prevented planting acres on your soybeans? Will you plant a cover crop instead? Are you hoping to get some bean acres planted even though the final planting date has passed? Or, does your insurance not even cover prevented planting for soybeans? Take the poll and let us know. Feel free to comment about your situation with your county and state and what your plan is for unplanted soybean acres for 2013.

Still planting wet spots wash outs and drown outs. About 5% of all acres. All went in late. Heck all iowa planted late. Worst beans crop I can remember. Been farming 41 years. Crop rating are way to high.

These polls are ridiculous -they can only hurt our prices -they never help- soybeans from here to Grand Island Nebraska are yellow. Many here are only a couple inches high and not moving along. Now its hot and the drown out spots are dying. Over all - we may have a average crop but everything will be very late - much of the corn is 10 inches high. North Dakota

Only 7% of my bean acres. A lot was planted late and are very small yet.

planted soys after the preventive plant date but scouting fields for weed pressure have come to the conclusion that the rains after planting have decreased the population and with the wet soils it is to late for the rotary hoe and in looking at friends and neighbors fields it is the same for them also. so yeilds are going to be affected dramatically. wright county - minnesota 07-04-2013

As long as I can plant in the late planting period and have my beans covered by insurance even though I'm also having my APH reduced, with moisture, I could make 35+ bushels/$450+ potential. With a 35 FAC APH and PP with 80% coverage, I would get $200+ and have to keep ground cleaned up or plant a cover. I farm to make a crop, so I 'd rather have the crop and income since any failure is covered by insurance based on my coverage at 100% of $ guarantee. I'll take the risk - that's what farming is every year!

Why isn't there a response for not needing to take prevented planting?

We had the worst luck this Spring I can remember, northeast Iowa large area poor planting conditions and hay is still not cut and of poor quality now. Erosion is terrible, we must stop farming some of these areas in row crop rotations, it is not correct in Gods eyes to destroy the earth like this.
