Soybean Variety Trial Results 2013
Soybean Variety Trial Results 2013
Soybean variety selection should be based on maturity, yield, seed quality, lodging, iron deficiency chlorosis tolerance and disease reaction. Later-maturing varieties tend to yield more than early maturing varieties when evaluated at the same location. After determining a suitable maturity for the farm, comparing yields of varieties that are of similar maturity is important. Although later maturity increases yield potential, later- maturing cultivars are more risky to grow than earlier-maturing varieties because an early fall frost may kill a late-maturing variety before the beans have filled the pods, which will reduce yield greatly.
