Soybean research verification program update – July 3, 2014

Rainfall and amounts were from .45” to 7” this week on the verification fields. Despite the saturated conditions the beans continue to progress. Insect and disease pressure remains below treatment levels in all the verification fields this week. We are still cleaning up the late planted fields with herbicide applications in preparation for irrigation.
