Missouri crop performance, 2009 : soybean
"The large number of varieties available makes selection of a superior variety difficult. To select intelligently, producers need a reliable, unbiased, up-to-date source of information that will permit valid comparisons among available varieties. The objective of the University of Missouri’s performance testing program is to provide this information. The tests are conducted under as uniform conditions as possible. Small plots are used to reduce the chance of soil and climatic variations occurring between the variety plots. Results obtained should aid the individual grower in judging the relative merits of the commercial soybean varieties available in Missouri today."--First page.
