We finished harvesting the soybean variety plot located on the Lawler Farm (just east of Rochester) on October 17 and 18. I am posting the yield results from this trial. Click on each trial name to see the report.
The Early Maturity (0.9 - 1.8) group out-performed the Late-Maturity (1.9 - 2.5) on average by ~4.5 bu/a. The early group (31 entries) averaged 57.8 bu/a and the late group (38 entries) averaged 53.2 bu/a. We did have frost damage on the plots and most of the damage was in the Late Maturity trial.
Results from other trials will be posted as they are available. Support for these trials comes from individual company entries and the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
