Soybean seeding rate is one of the most heavily debated and frankly, in my humble opinion, the most overthought agronomic decision we make in soybean.

Soil pH of 6 – 6.8 is ideal. Banding fertilizers and foliar feeding are common application methods but should be considered only when conventional methods are not satisfying. Soybeans grains have a nitrogen content of 40%, therefore an adequate fertilization of nitrogen is a key factor in achieving high quality yields. via
Can you plant soybeans by hand?
Late May to early June are good planting dates in the US. If this is the first time that you've planted soybeans in this field, understand that you'll need to inoculate the seeds so that they will be able to produce nitrogen. You can broadcast the seed and fertilizer using a hand seeder or simply toss it out by hand. via
