Final Project Results

The test cooperators met at the Soybean Breeders’ Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri to prepare for the large field experiments that will be grown this summer. During 2012, the experiment will include 37,600 yield plots and preparations for these experiments have been extensive. The cooperators have fields reserved for the tests and should be ready to plant them as soon as field conditions are favorable.
