  • In this trial, nine Asgrow® brand XtendFlex® soybean products were grown under dryland and irrigated environments.
  • This comparison used single-replication, large plots or 0.13 acres and 0.03 acres for dryland and irrigated plots, respectively.
  • No statistical analysis was performed.
  • The irrigated plots were sprinkler-irrigated.
  • Fertility, applied with a Chafer Fertilizer Streambar on 4/14/20, included 50 lb phosphorus/acre, 11 lb sulfur/acre, and 20 lb nitrogen/acre.
  • Weeds were controlled as necessary and no other pesticides were used in this study.
