Soybean Checkoff Research
Double Crop Soybeans
Relative maturity has little effect on yield when soybeans are planted during the first three weeks of May. However, the effect can be larger for late planting. – Dr. Laura Lindsey, OSU Extension State Soybean Specialist
Developing Elite Genetics
“My best day is when a grower tells me about their great yields, and I feel like I can share in a little piece of their success.” – Reid Rice, Soybean Breeder, Corteva Agriscience
Warm germ testing results are mixed bag for 2019 carry-over seed
“We started to realize back in July that with all the unplanted seed that would carry-over, this was going to be an issue.” – Chris Jeffries, CCA, president of Seed Genetics Direct.
Soybean Research Recap
“Foliar fertilizer application on soybeans did not show a statistically significant yield difference.” – Laura Lindsey, OSU Extension Soybean Specialist
Overwintering of Pathogens and Insects – What do Winter Temperatures Tell Us About Next Season?
Over the years OSU Extension has developed databases of winter temperatures followed by scouting to indicate starting pathogen populations for Ohio.
Phytophthora sojae survey by the numbers
“Resistance genes are ideal because they are easy to breed into the soybean. The downside is that the pathogen can easily overcome the single resistance.” – Linda Weber, OARDC Plant Pathology
Soybean research addresses some of the challenges of 2019
“Planting date is still the number one factor that influences soybean yield.” – Laura Lindsey, Ohio State University Extension soybean specialist
2019 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials
“The lowest yield was 25 bu/ac, and the highest was 76 bu/ac.” – Laura Lindsey, OSU Extension Soybean and Small Grains Specialist
