Soybean research verification program weekly update – May 30, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

The scattered rainfall events continue plague the planting progress on the Verification fields, but we managed to get a couple more fields planted. The remaining fields are scheduled to be planted as conditions allow. Herbicide applications continue to be a priority as the fields dry out to try and keep weed pressure under control.
