Each year, numerous soybean varieties are commercially available to growers in Arkansas. However, only a limited number of soybean varieties have been tested in Arkansas at April plantings. Yield performance in early (April) plantings varies according to location, adaptability to soils, relative maturity, lodging, shattering potential, disease and nematode resistance, as well as herbicide and chloride sensitivity. These updates contain information derived from the 2011 and 2012 University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture soybean variety testing program.
