Project Summary

This project has a number of objectives that are being researched. A new objective evaluates the effects of different types of corn management on subsequent soybean yields. Various fertilizer management strategies and corn populations will be used to determine the effects of fertilizer management on the following year soybean yield and quality.

The research team will also determine the impact of water logged soils and other stresses on rhyzobial nitrogen fixation, soybean yield and quality. Funds will also be used to complete a multi-year study to define the risks and benefits of growing long season soybean varieties in Minnesota.
