Hundreds of soybean varieties are commercially available to growers in Arkansas. Varietal performance, including yield, varies according to location, environmental adaptability to soils, maturity, lodging, height, disease and nematode resistance, and herbicide and chloride sensitivity. This information listed in the Soybean Update is largely derived from the University of Arkansas System, Division of Agriculture Soybean Performance Trials and screening programs, and is provided as an aid in variety selection. Since proper variety selection involves knowledge of yield potential, maturity, disease reaction, herbicide sensitivity, etc., these and many other important characteristics are listed in this publication. You may access the pdf version of the 2015 Soybean Update here or by going to the Publications tab on this blog.
