The NDSU soybean program conducts several performance tests of commercial lines/varieties. These results are published publicly to allow North Dakota farmers to make informed decisions in their seed choices.  Available tests are Soybean Variety Yield Trials, Soybean Cyst Nematode, and Iron Deficiency Chlorosis. 

As of 2021, entering lines/varieties into these tests can be done online.

Soybean Variety Yield Trials for Central and Southern Regions
Yield trials will be conducted for Non-GMO and GMO cultivars in the Central and Southern regions of North Dakota. Nine (9) pounds of seed is required for each entry. Cultivars must be of maturity no later than 0.7 for the Central test and no later than 1.3 for the Southern test. Treated seed will be accepted. Experimental lines will not be accepted unless seed will be available commercially in 2022. The fee is $270 for each entry. NOTE: There will be no refunds in the event of a natural disaster such as hail.

Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) Test
SCN-resistant soybean cultivars evaluated on SCN-infested soil. Six (6) pounds of seed is required for each entry. Treated seed will be accepted. Experimental lines will not be accepted unless seed will be available commercially in 2022. There is no fee for this test.
