“Are my soybeans dead?”  With the recent frost across the upper Midwest, this has been a very common question. These pictures taken on 6/1/21 in Elkader, IA are soybeans that were affected by frost on 5/29/21. At first glance the plants appear severely damaged and possibly dead, however plants #1-4 all survived the damage and plant #5 did not(see below). When assessing frost damage on soybeans it is important to check the nodes below the affected tissue for new growth which will typically start 1-2 days after frost event.
