Indiana Prairie Farmer;May2013, Vol. 187 Issue 5, p4
The article reports that a lot of the first-planted soybean fields had enough soil moisture at a typical depth of 1.0 to 1.5 inches and as the fields dried out, that typical seedling depth leads to uneven emergence due to variations in soil moisture.
