Time is of the essence to assess emerging soybean fields to determine the need for interplanting to strengthen stands or replanting weak (e.g., ponded) areas. The following video demonstrates how to take proper soybean plant stands in drilled rows. The hula hoop method is preferred for narrow rows, as linear measure is best in wide rows. All are based on 1/10,000 of an acre measurement. Multiple counts throughout the field provides a better assessment in replanting decisions.
