OBJECTIVE: obtain good root development

  • Soybean can be cultivated on many soil types. However, limestone soils should be avoided when lime content is higher than 10%. Such soils can cause iron chlorosis, limit nodulation and dramatically reduce soybean growth.
  • If there is no irrigation, avoid soils with low water holding capacity (superficial clay-limestone soils, sand, etc.) that result in low yields and more irregular protein content.
