Large Plot Details
Plot size was 0.54 acre (12 rows each; 600 feet long), non-replicated, and managed according to local practices and harvested with commercial equipment. Data was adjusted for moisture as needed. A total of 14 soybean products ranging from MG 1 to MG 5 were planted at two planting dates.
A desiccant to aid in harvest was applied to both demonstrations when soybean seed pods were brown in color. Plots were then harvested 5 to 7 days later. A range of harvest dates was used based upon when soybean products reached maturity.
