September Update on Soybeans

"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value." - Albert Einstein


This plot documents the timeframe for soybeans just before going to the final stages of pod fill and senescence. The ratings today are on Height and Color. While color has shown to be irrevelant as it relates from one variety to the next I like to document this characteristic to compare later. Sometimes, the most showy soybean does not yield any different than the less appealing product. Height is important only as it relates to stand ability. I did not rate stand-ability this time as every bean in the plot was standing perfectly on 15" rows in spite of the heavy rains we have received. If that changes there will most likely be rating.
