Brief Project Summary:

Soybean acreage continues to increase throughout New York State (Field Crops, 2017). According to the 2016 New York State agriculture overview, 320,000 acres of soybeans were harvested with an average yield of 41 bushel/acre. Soybeans response to nutrients depend on growth and yield potential, availability and weather. Soybeans, like all crops, need sulfur (S) (Davidson, 2014). There are 18 essential nutrients needed for plant growth and development. They can be divided into two core groups; macronutrients (9) and micronutrients (9) (Place et al., 2007). Sulfur is considered one of the 9 essential macronutrients and is used in processes such as protein and enzyme synthesis that help regulate...

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.
