Double-crop, soybean, wheat residue, burn, tillage


Double-cropping soybeans after wheat is common in southeastern Kansas and yields of double-crop soybean during the three years of this study were not affected by manage­ment of previous wheat straw practices such as burning or tillage done before plant­ing. However, in the second and third year of the study, subsequent wheat yields were increased by 30% or more when the wheat residue had been burned the previous year.
