Soybean Checkoff Research
Ohio Growers, We Invite You to Get Involved in Research
It does not matter if you are growing soybean or corn, if you are a grower in Ohio, you can still participate in this research.
Recommendations for Soybeans Planted in June
Higher seeding rates are recommended for June plantings. Final (harvest) population for soybeans planted in June should be 130,000 to 150,000 plants/acre.
Reducing Harmful Algal Blooms
New research shows that merely reducing phosphorus loadings in Lake Erie will not solve the HAB problem.
Bt Trait Waits in the Wings as Soybean Farmers Struggle with SCN Control

Soybean Planting Progress and Vegetative Growth
There are several common misconceptions about soybean plants at the VC to V3 growth stage.
SCN Testing in newly planted corn fields
“Things like soil health, chemical and physical soil characteristics, texture, pH, organic matter, extractable nutrients and respiration will all help us better understand the SCN population dynamics.”
