Brief Project Summary:

We propose a 3-year collaborative (interdisciplinary and interuniversity) regional project, that will be Co-directed by PIs at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and University of Wisconsin-Madison, with collaborators in OH, MI, IA, IN, MN, KS, IL, and ND. The primary goal of the proposed project is to “benchmark” current yield and management practices in producer fields across the NC-USA region. That “benchmark data” will help to identify those KEY management factors in each state (and across the NC USA region) that can be used by individual producers to increase soybean yield on their farms, and do that with an input-use efficiency that will improve bottom-line net profit. We believe that...

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.
