Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – June 29, 2012
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Irrigation efforts continue as quickly as possible.  In a couple of situations, we are behind on irrigation timing and frequency due to shared wells.  Forecasted temperatures well in excess of the 100 degree mark and no rain in the forecast is making it difficult to keep up with plants water requirements.  None of the fields have insect or disease problems as of this date.
