Question of the Week: Sprouted Soybeans

Last week the question was:  Whats going on with these soybeans?

These are some early maturing soybeans (group 4) that were just about ready to harvest at the beginning of the 13 straight days of rain we had a couple weeks ago.  The continuous rain kept them moist and they sprouted.  Sprouted beans are not usable, but luckily the sunlight we’ve had lately has stopped more from sprouting.  Once the sprouted beans are dried up, they will ideally blow out the back of the combine, though if the whole field has a high percentage of sprouted beans, it may not be worth harvesting.  Contact your crop insurance adjuster if this is the case.

Here is this week’s question:  What is this?

    Looks like smurf seed to me. Or maybe Canola with a seed treatment?
