Double Cropping Winter Wheat and Soybeans

You Are Not The Only One Double Cropping Beans Behind Wheat (By Stu Ellis – FarmGate Blog)

SUMMARY: Soft red winter wheat acreage has increased this year by several million acres, and many of them will have soybeans planted behind the combine when wheat is harvested.  The increased double crop acreage for 2011 is partially a function of the good fall weather in 2010 that allowed wheat to be planted in a timely manner, as well as high prices for soybeans.  But beans are at a lesser ratio now to corn, and that ratio will have a lesser prominence, if the beans are double cropped behind wheat.
