Soybean research verification program update – June 6, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Despite the rainfall events we were able to get all but 4 verification fields planted. The fields that are up look good and appear to be handling the saturated conditions well. Herbicide applications continue to be a priority as the fields dry out to try and keep weed pressure under control. Insect and disease pressure is minimal at this time.
