Soybean High Yield Checklist Chad Lee, Extension Agronomist, University of Kentucky These soybeans went 90 bu/A and hit every point on the checklist. Based on the responses to the Corn High Yield Checklist we decided to define the key parameters to getting high soybean yields. You will see a lot of similar points between this checklist and the one for corn. Both of these checklists are intended to be a framework for where high yields start.

If soil compaction is suspected, it is best to identify the areas in the field where it exists, what depth the compaction begins, and what depth the compaction ceases.
