Yield Estimation

When growing soybeans, weather can be a major factor in determining crop yield. While some water is necessary in order to grow soybeans, it isn’t the only factor. Certain soybean varieties can also be grown under dry field conditions. In India, the crop is grown in many regions with low water availability, including Gujarat, Rajasthan, and MP.

Soybean yields of 15 to 20 Qt. / hectare can be achieved under dry-farming conditions, while crop yields of 20 to 28 Qt. / hectare can be achieved under normal conditions (fields that are irrigated with water).

Yields of 30 Qt. / hectare can even be achieved by planting a good variety seed and using the recommended agri-inputs and irrigation methods.

Important points to remember for high production (factors affecting soybean crop yield):

Agri-Input examples:

  1. Seed: use a good variety seed (high yielding, disease resistant, and drought tolerant) as per local climatic growing region.
  2. Fertilizers: use the recommended dose of fertilizers, micronutrients and gypsum.
  3. Agrochemical and IPM (Integrated Pest Management) use agrochemicals as required to manage pests and weeds.

Irrigation:  water availability is critical at certain stages of crop development (i.e. flowering and pod filling)

Harvesting time: harvest the crop when fully mature.
