Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – June 4, 2012
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

There are 21 fields enrolled in the Soybean Research Verification Program this year and they range from not planted to R1. Hopefully the remaining 4 fields will be planted this week. Rainfall was scattered last week with some of the fields receiving a good rain while others received nothing. Irrigation has been started on some the fields while others are being prepared for irrigation. Weed control has been a challenge this year, but we have them relatively clean now. Insect and disease pressure hasn’t been a problem so far.
