Understanding the Results
The combination of all three inputs, rhizobium inoculant, insecticide, and fungicide (RI + FI + FF), as well as the insecticide and fungicide combination (FI + FF) provided the highest average yield for both soybean products.
What Does This Mean for Your Farm?
Achieving maximum soybean yield potential depends on management practices that minimize plant stress and reduce the impact of environmental conditions on plant health.
Reduction of stresses with the use of fertilizer, inoculant, fungicide, and insecticide can help achieve maximum yield potential.
Agronomic practices, such as row spacing, proper planting date, and population, can help reduce the impact of environmental stresses.
