No, rotation restrictions on atrazine use only allow for the planting of soybeans in the following spring. You run a large risk of crop injury to plant soybeans in a field where atrazine was applied this spring.

For more information you should contact Clint Hardy at the Daviess Co Cooperative Extension Office at +1 (270) 685-8480. Or conduct a web search for AGR- 6 2013 Weed Control Recommendations for Kentucky grain crops.
