2013 Soybean Product Evaluation Trials Available Online

Laura Lindsey, J D Bethel

The purpose of the Ohio Soybean Product Evaluation Trials is to evaluate soybean products for stand and yield.  This evaluation gives soybean producers comparative information for selecting soybean products for their unique production systems.  During 2013, the soybean agronomy team evaluated 12 soybean seed treatments and two foliar products at six Ohio locations.  Products included inoculant, fertilizer, growth regulators, insecticides, and fungicides.  All entries were submitted voluntarily by companies.  Application protocol and product rate were provided by the company.  Companies designated their product to be applied to treated or untreated seed.  Treated seed was treated with Acceleron (metalaxyl + pyraclostrobin + fluxapyroxad + imidacloprid).  There were two controls of treated seed (treated check) and untreated seed (untreated check).  Results of the products applied to treated seed should be compared to the treated check while products applied to untreated seed should be compared to the untreated check.  Results can be found online at: 2013 Soybean Product Evaluation Report, http://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/soybean/current-research-projects/2013%20Soybean%20Product%20Evaluation%20Report.pdf/view.
