Two Soybean Farmers Report Once in a Lifetime Crops

August 2, 2011 06:00 AM
 

At the first-ever Soybean College, attendees were asked to rate their soybean crop for the year. The choices were: poor, average, excellent, and the best soybean crop of your life. The 160+ attendees from 15 states, Canada and Mexico were asked to sit down as their crop condition was named.

Two attendees stayed standing to say that they think their soybeans will break their all-time best come harvest this fall.

One was Brad Koen from DeWitt, Arkansas who says he's had to irrigate his soybeans five times and it trying to manage an infestation of boll weeville, but his efforts may just yield his largest yield yet.

And world-recorder holder Kip Cullers says he thought at one time his crop could yield 200-bu. Even though he isn't calculating that high of a yield, he still think he could beat the 160.6 bu./acre that is his current record.
