The genetic yield potential of soybeans in the midwestern United States is estimated to be approximately 100 bu/acre based on results from small plot studies. However, field and statewide average yields are much lower each year. Do you ever wonder how much yield was lost from different stresses or management decisions made during the year? Iowa State University has developed a Web-based system to help you estimate yield losses due to different stresses and management practices. The software, called WebGro, was developed with funding from the Soybean Research and Development Council and is the culmination of six years of research to study the effects of interacting stresses on soybean yield.
