The Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) Bean app features six unique and interactive tools to assist soybean and dry bean farmers with important crop production decisions, such as seeding rates and fungicide applications.

● Use the Seeding Rate Calculator to find the most economical seeding rate for your soybeans. This tool first helps you identify the optimum plant stand based on current market price and expected yield, and then by estimating the seed survival rate, the calculator recommends a seeding rate that will be most profitable.

● Use the Soybean plant stand calculator tool to assess your established plant population and receive feedback based on scientific data conducted in Manitoba. This tool is a great example of how the results of scientific research can be applied directly to production practices.

● Use the Soybean Growth Staging Guide to identify all the key growth and development stages of soybeans. Proper identification of growth staging is critical for field operations such as herbicide and fungicide applications. This tool identifies each growth stage from emergence to harvest, with pictures and detailed descriptions as a helpful reference.

● Use the Soybean yield estimator tool to ‘estimate’ soybean yield. You may find it useful to estimate your soybean yield to help aid in judging storage capacity and budgeting. But remember, it’s only an estimate! Soybean yields are highly variable within fields. Increasing the number of samples can increase the accuracy.

● Soybean Harvest Loss Assessor – Determine soybean yield loss during harvest. This tool allows you to enter counts of soybean seeds lost at the header, where 80% of harvest losses occur. The calculator easily converts seed counts to yield loss by factoring in seed size and the rule that 4 seeds per square foot are equal to 1 bu/ac of yield loss. This tool may also be used for losses behind the combine.

● Use the Fungicide Decision Tool to assess the risk of white mould in your dry beans. This tool considers the key elements that can lead to disease development; weather conditions, management practices, andcrop rotation.
