anybody have any experience with the new soybean genetics

in very late planted or doublecrop situations?

My considerable experience with DC was back a while ago and since it is a marginal practice here, you wouldn't have wanted to spend $60/ acre on seed.

But does a similar yield advantage carry through there?

Re: anybody have any experience with the new soybean genetics

What you`re asking is if new genetics help beans that are late planted yield better than they would`ve  in the past?  IMO the lack of sunlight (after June 21), lack of heat are hard to over come, I mean Mother Nature does bat last.  That said, they used to say beans couldn`t be grown in North Dakota with their short season and that was proven wrong.   All I know is if I planted beans now, they`d get 10" tall and 10 pods per plant and drive across the field and they`d still be bunching up on the sickle and on that Thanksgiving Day of combining, they tank would have 18% and "butter beans".
