Soybean research verification program update for August 8, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Rainfall was scattered across the SRVP fields this week. Irrigation continues to be top priority at this point in the program and we have terminated irrigation a few fields. Overall insect and disease pressure was light in the verification fields this week; however we did reach treatment level for bollworms in Clark County and frogeye in one of the Phillips County fields.
