Information And Results
Final Project Results

Updated December 10, 2019:
This multi-state project was started 6 years ago to inform growers about best management practices for new soybean herbicide resistance traits. Because there was a greater need for information to control herbicide resistant weeds in the early years of this effort, and there were delays in trait regulatory approvals, most of the early work focused on workshops and development of training materials for control of herbicide-resistant weeds in Roundup Ready and non-GMO soybeans. More recently, utilization of Liberty Link and Xtend soybean has grown, cover crop adoption has expanded, thus, the emphasis has shifted towards education and demonstration using these technologies to control weeds. However, there is still a need to continue the education and demonstration process as we learn more about application technologies to keep herbicides from moving off-target, use of diverse cover crops as a weed control tool, and with the recent approval of Enlist soybean and additional herbicide-resistance traited soybean varieties which will be grown commercially in the near future.

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.
