The Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) Bean app features a Seeding Rate Calculator to determine the economically optimum seeding rate, a Soybean Plant Stand Calculator to determine soybean plant populations once the crop is up, and a Soybean Yield Estimator to help growers estimate soybean yield. Use the Soybean plant stand calculator tool to assess your plant population and receive feedback based on scientific research conducted in Manitoba. This tool is a great example of how the results of scientific research can be applied directly to production practices. The research referenced in the plant stand tool is derived from the results of work conducted by Dr. Ramona Mohr et al. from Agriculture and Agri-Food across 13 site-years in Manitoba from 2011-2013. Use the Soybean yield estimator tool to estimate soybean yield. You may find it useful to estimate your soybean yield to help aid in judging storage capacity and budgeting. But remember, its only an estimate! Soybean yields are highly variable within fields. Increasing the number of samples can increase the accuracy. Use the Seeding Rate Calculator to determine the economically optimum seeding rate by first identifying the economically optimum target plant stand. The optimum target plant stand fluctuates depending on soybean price and seed cost. Then, you can determine your seeding rate based on expected seed survival which is farm specific depending on equipment, field conditions, seed quality etc. This is another great example of bringing scientific research results directly to the farm.The Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers does not validate results and takes no responsibility for the accuracy of these results.The MPSG Bean App was developed with assistance from Kristen Podolsky (MPSG) and funding for the development of this app has been provided by Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers.
