Brief Project Summary:

Soybean producers need high crop yields to overcome rising input costs, dwindling farmland, and increasing global demand for soybean. The project's goal is to improve soybean production practices in Indiana by using field surveys to identify yield limitations to soybean production. The overall goal of this research is to protect and enhance soybean yields by improving and refining current production practices. The identification of yield-limiting factors within specific regions of Indiana will shape the Extension and research blueprint for numerous years.

A state-wide study was initiated in 2010 with the assistance of Purdue Extension Educators to survey farmer best management practices,...
