  • Nitrogen could solve soybean crop problems in region

    University of Kentucky Extension Agronomist Dr. Chad Lee is encouraging producers across the state to closely examine their soybeans. Several soybeans have turned yellow in the past few weeks and further examination revealed little to no nodules.

    Nodules, located on the roots, are critical to soybeans because it is the bacteria living in the nodules that biologically fixate atmospheric nitrogen for the plant. Soybeans demand a high amount of nitrogen for production, and if the plant cannot fixate its own nitrogen, yields will be greatly decreased.

    Collins took off in game one with a 6-0 lead, and the Lady Panthers were not able to catch up.
