Yellowing soybeans

This is the first time I've ever grown soybeans, as there is no market in my area. Will need to haul them this fall quite a distance.


My pH is in the high 7's and the area is fully irrigated. We're capable of growing 275 bu. corn. The south 40 acres is a darker green, but the north 40 is considerably lighter in color, with a yellowish green tint to them. I'm thinking they're similar to corn as they get a little yellow when deprived of sunshine and the ground is holding moisture well.


We're getting some 90 degree weather now, so the next few days should help. I heard soybeans don't like "wet feet" so am thinking maybe I irrigated them too much, too early.


Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
