Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm
This project is designed to compare the yields of the new Iowa State low linolenic soybean varieties with soybean varieties commonly grown in the territory covered by the Southeast Research Farm near Crawfordsville, Iowa. The territory where these low linolenic soybeans were grown was fairly broad, so the varieties used in this trial varied by one maturity range. The new low linolenic soybean varieties are adapted to the area surrounding the research facility, and producers will need performance data to determine whether the premium offered for growing the new soybeans is adequate. Premiums are designed to cover yield drag and identity preservation costs.
