Optimism for soybean yields should still be high! Soybean yield potential along with field by field return on investment can be heavily influenced during July and August. There are many in season management decisions you can control that can improve your bottom line. There and many relatively small investments you can still make in your soybean crop that can yield big returns for 2024.

Soybean Plant Health and Stress Management

Making sure your soybean plant is running at peak efficiency and production is key. In-season you have the ability to use unique products that, if well timed, can have a large impact on maximizing the soybean plants efficiency and production.

Foliar Bio Stimulants

Phycoterra FX

The phyllosphere on the surface of a plant’s leaf tissue plays a vital role as the frontline defense against environmental stressors and is essential in photosynthesis, biomass production, and reproduction. Despite its significance, the leaf’s surface presents challenges such as limited food sources and harsh conditions that impede the survival of essential microbes that assist in all those key functions. PhycoTerra FX is designed to feed and activate this unique microbiome and facilitates abiotic stress relief throughout the dynamic growing season.

YieldON is a biostimulant focused on increasing the number of pods and seed capacity of each soybean plant. This product causes the plant to transport sugar and nutrients more efficiently, resulting in heavier seeds and less pod loss.


Fungicides can impact yields beyond just disease control. Newer, high-end fungicides have a level of crop stress mitigation that directly impacts plant health. Unlike corn, soybean yields are driven by the middle third of the plant. Soybean energy distribution is more localized and pod fill comes from neighboring leaves, not from other parts of the plant. Fungicides such as Miravis Neo can help protect leaf retention to maximize photosynthetic production.

Crop Nutrition at Key Times

Success of in season crop nutrition management hinges on the soybean plant having key nutrients at key developmental stages.

Foliar Feeding

In season foliar feeding can be a highly effective way to supplement key micronutrients for the crop. In order to make this work effectively understanding what nutrients are most important at key times will have the most impact on achieving maximum response.

Two key timings in soybean development are flowering/pollination and pod development/fill. Boron, Zinc, and Manganese are key micros during early reproductive stages that aid in pollination, chlorophyl production, and photosynthetic efficiency. Boron and Molybdenum are key micros during late reproductive stages that aid in pollination and pod retention. One crucial step is using a high-quality micronutrient product like Brandt Smart Trio and Brandt Smart B-Mo. What makes these products superior? - Check out this information from Brandt to tell you why.

Protection from Pests


Foliar soybean diseases such as Frogeye Leaf Spot, Brown Spot, and White Mold can rob yield from soybeans late in the season. Depending on what diseases you are targeting, single or multiple applications of a high-end fungicide with good residual control such as Miravis Neo should be used.


Soybean aphids and spider mites can be a problem in certain years. Make sure to scout or have an FCS agronomist scout for the presence of these pests. This is best done prior to potential treatment to find out if an insecticide treated is needed or needs to be customized for the target pest present in your field.
