Brief Project Summary:

This research evaluates the performance of double crop soybean planted after an earlier than normal wheat harvest date. Specifically, this research will first evaluate the influence on soybean performance of an early and a late maturing wheat variety harvested over a range of dates from mid-June to early July. Double crop soybean will be planted as soon as possible after each harvest date. Soybean varieties representing late MG 3 to late MG 4 will be planted immediately after each wheat harvest date. The soybean portion of the study will evaluate the influence that the plant dates and the representative maturity groups for the soybean varieties have on soybean performance.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
