Most years, about 60% of farmers have made their soybean seed-buying decisions for the upcoming season by now, according to the Farm Journal annual seed and planting survey. This year that percentage appears to be trending higher, based on farmers’ feedback about growing dicamba-tolerant soybeans.
Results from the Farm Journal PULSE survey conducted earlier this week show that 40% (411) of the 1,036 farmers who responded plan to grow dicamba-tolerant soybeans in 2018. Forty-nine (508) percent of farmers have decided not to grow them, and 11% (117) are still undecided.
