Soybean tillage and rotation yields

[ Edited ]

Iowa State put out an interesting paper that says that soybeans don't suffer any yield reduction due to no-till, so if your objective is to reduce soybean input costs, no-till might be a way to save time and diesel without yield penalty.

The same paper says that beans in a C-C-S rotation yield about 5% (3.5 bu/acre) better than a C-S rotation.
