Soybean research verification program update for August 15, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Rainfall was more abundant across the southern 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 frogeye in the Prairie County field.
