Project Summary

This project will continue the effort to determine the management and environmental limitations to yield, protein and oil accumulation in Minnesota soybeans. The results will be used to develop management and breeding strategies that can be developed to overcome these limitations. This project will include modeling interplant distance affects on soybean branching and pod height and evaluate interacting environmental factors such as ambient temperature, soil moisture, residue type and quantity, to determine whether existing seeding rate recommendations are sufficient to reduce harvest loss due to pod height. The researchers will evaluate soybeans across geographies and maturity groups to determine the effects of soil rolling (land rolling) on lowest pod height. Other objectives will be to investigate plant growth, yield and quality in developing seed of different varieties and maturities; and to determine risks/ benefits of planting early.

Project Objectives

1. Evaluate soybeans across geographies and maturity groups to determine the effects of soil rolling (land rolling) on lowest pod height.
2. Investigate plant growth, yield and quality in developing seed of different varieties and maturities to determine risks/ benefits of planting early.
