Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – June 7, 2011
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

As the water continues to fall and the fields dry out, we are able to get more soybeans planted. Ten out of the seventeen verification fields have been planted, and hopefully the remainder of the fields will get planted this week. We had some cooperators that opted not to participate in the program this year, due to the recent rainfall and flooding events.
