A two-week delay for half the plants sets up the crop for up to 17% loss. That’s why uniform emergence is so vital to optimum corn yields.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/2014-midwest-corn-amp-soybean-production-guide/uniform-emergence-must" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/2014-midwest-corn-amp-soybean-production-guide/uniform-emergence-must#comments 2014 Midwest Corn & Soybean Production Guide corn-soybean production guide Fri, 20 Dec 2013 20:33:00 +0000 87831 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Stop seedling diseases http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/2014-midwest-corn-amp-soybean-production-guide/stop-seedling-diseases <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Soybeans are a magnet for seedling diseases and seed rot.
