Double cropping soybeans after wheat is a common practice in many states, from Kansas to Maryland and south to the Gulf of Mexico.
We typically think of this rotation being planted south of Interstate 70 in the U.S. Pushing the rotation further north puts soybeans at risk of frost damage and reduces the opportunity to make a profit on soybeans.
So it was something of a surprise to learn Ontario growers are successfully planting soybeans after peas (an early vegetable), barley or wheat and that both crops in the rotation are profitable.
