Kansas agricultural producers are always looking for crops and crop varieties that will work best in their operation. The 2007 Kansas Soybean Performance Test report can help growers with those choices for the upcoming crop year.
The test results, found at kscroptests.agron.ksu.edu/07/07beans/7b-test.asp, are a program of Kansas State University Research and Extension with support from the Kansas Soybean Commission.
A key part of the information available is the 2007 ratings for the soybean cyst nematode and sudden death syndrome resistance of all soybean varieties.
The data on the site are broken down by location (research field in a particular county or counties) and by region (e.g., north central).
Summaries of yield, maturity, height and lodging at numerous locations in Kansas are included in the data. The report also provides two- and three-year yield summaries in bushels per acre and percent of test average.
Also on the site is information about variety characteristics, a Kansas rainfall image map, and a place where growers and others can sign up to receive e-mail notification when performance test entry forms and new data become available.
