Correction: Soybean seeding rates

An article on Page 12 of the Feb. 20, 2009, issue of Delta Farm Press displayed incorrect information regarding criteria for selecting seeding rates. The correct information is:

Higher seeding rate situations:

• Planting extremely early (March — early April)

• Heavy clay soils

• Group 3s or early to mid-group 4 varieties

• Planting with a gravity flow drill

• Rough soil conditions

• Low germination seed

Lower seeding rate situations

• Late planting (late April through mid-May)

• Sandy soils

• Group 5 varieties

• Vacuum planter

• Smooth or optimal soil conditions

• High germination seed (greater than 90 percent germination)
