Soybean research verification program update for August 1, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Rainfall was scattered across the SRVP fields this week. All the fields in the program have reached the reproductive stage and are enjoying the mild conditions this week. Irrigation continues to be top priority at this point in the program and we have a few fields that are approaching irrigation termination. Insect and disease pressure was light in the verification fields this week.
