Soybean research verification program update
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

There are 16 fields enrolled in the Soybean Research Verification Program this year and they range from V2 to R5. Rainfall was scattered 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.  See the table below for detailed information about each SRVP location.
