Factors such as soil type, planting date, irrigation capabilities, row spacing, harvest capacity, and others may influence the decision of selecting an appropriate variety for profitable soybean production.Soybean Varieties

There are a number of excellent varieties available to choose from. The link below is to the 2015 list of variety suggestions. These variety suggestions are meant to serve as a condensed list of varieties capable of performing across a range of production systems and environments. The list is composed of varieties that were selected based upon overall consistency, performance, results in variety trials and/or on-farm variety demonstrations, general observations throughout the growing season, and/or the ability to perform across different environments.

It is important to spread out risks associated with soybean production by selecting multiple varieties for a given operation. No variety is perfect. Therefore risks can be minimized by choosing several varieties that have a potential fit for your needs. Keep in mind that an excellent source of information on varieties is your own past experience on your farm observing variety performance on your specific soils under your own management practices. In addition, if you are selecting new varieties or some that you have not planted in the past, plant these on a smaller scale to ensure that they have a fit for your farm.
