Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – June 25, 2012
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Irrigation is what’s going on in the verification fields at this time. We are trying to keep the fields moving forward and fulfill the plants water needs with timely irrigation. We still have a few fields that we are trying clean up the weeds in and get the irrigation started on. Insect and disease pressure hasn’t been a problem so far.
