Information And Results
Project Deliverables

The proposed project will generate methods that are relevant to soybean breeders, agronomists, and physiologists:

• Techniques will be developed for rapid and accurate in-field determination of canopy closure and relations to light interception and soybean growth.

• Non-destructive means of estimating soybean yield potential over large populations for breeding selection via crop reflectance measurements will be developed. This has the potential to also be used by public and private crop professionals to assist growers.

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.
