    Doublecropping winter wheat with soybeans has become a popular and profitable practice in the Southeast. The long frost-free growing season of the region allows farmers to successfully doublecrop, but higher costs, time and labor constraints, and a desire for less soil erosion have all contributed to increased interest in conservation tillage ?number=B   In areas where the cropping season is long enough, soybeans are planted after wheat harvest. The practice is called double cropping because both wheat and soybeans are grown in one year. The wheat is grown in the winter and soybeans are grown during the ://

Double-cropping wheat and soybeans in the southeast. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Wheat–soybean double cropping substantially improved farm profitability and stability of cash flow in local farms (M. Redolatti, personal communication).

This cropping system has several advantages. A crop, growing on the land all year, provides control of soil erosion.

Spreading annual fixed costs such as land, taxes and machinery over two crops instead of one may increase gross returns per acre with relatively low increases in production Double cropping after wheat harvest can be a high-risk venture, says Ignacio Ciampitti.

The available growing season is relatively short. Heat and/or dry conditions in July and August may cause problems with germination, emergence, seed set or grain fill. The soil moisture status is not as desirable as in previous years, thus the odds of success this season may be impacted by the low soil By Ignacio Ciampitti, Extension Cropping Systems Specialist and Doug Shoup, Southeast Area Crops and Soil Specialist Double cropping after wheat can be a high-risk venture.

The Southeast leads the Nation in total double-cropped acreage, Note: USDA, Economic ?v= In recent years, farmers in Missouri have grown soybeans on more than five million acres.

Soybeans were the most economically successful crop for Missouri farmers in the s and early s. While yields in averaged ab these yields were the lowest in recent soybean production history. Yields during more favorable years have ranged from 25 to Although weather conditions in Farmers double-cropped about million acres of U.S.
