Winkler Knowledge Plot Soybean Data

-        All soybeans were planted on May 19/2016, unless otherwise noted in the Planting Date Trial.

-        All soybean trials were planted at 1.5 to 2” depth depending on moisture

-        All soybeans were fertilized with 125 Lbs of 11-52 product and 60 Lbs of 0-0-60 product

-        All soybeans were seed treated with Evergol Energy Stress Shield and inoculated with Optimize and Tag Team granular, unless otherwise noted in the agronomy blocks

-        All soybean trials were treated with 2 full applications of round up for weed control, unless otherwise noted in the herbicide trial

-        All soybeans were seeded at 160,000 plants per acre, unless otherwise noted in the population trials

-        All trials are done 3rd party by Ag quest

-        The soybean yield trial is replicated 4 times for data accuracy

-        There is a significant yield differential between the early-mid and the mid to full maturing varieties

-        We at Legend Seeds see the top end yield potential on the full season varieties in 2016

-        Frost was NOT a factor on the varieties in Winkler plot location

-        There was no signs of moisture deficit in the Winkler knowledge plot location, that could have had an impact on yield results

-        Overall our CV (coefficient variance) stayed below 6, which makes this year’s data more reliable

 

-        We noticed that the LS Solaire had really great standability and the best genetics on Phytophthora Root Rot in our line up

-        The LS Northwester is still the earliest maturing variety in our line up at 106 days to full maturity from planting

-        LS 002R24N expressed a huge amount of 4 bean pods with an excellent standability for its bushy stature

-        LS 003R24N our second highest yielding early season variety, with hearing great yields throughout the province

-        Looking for a great IDC soybean for those really tough soils, LS Mistral rated one of the top IDC varieties from the Manitoba Pulse IDC trials

-        LS 005R22 great IDC, Phytophthora, consistent yielding soybean since 2012.

-        New high yielding and great genetic package coming out of the LS Eclipse, suited for all row widths

-        Pro 2525R2 amazing pod height off the ground, with being the highest mid-season 2 years running in the McVet trials

-        The Pro 2525R2 has a great rating on IDC rating according to Legend Seeds and the Manitoba Pulse Growers

-         0077XRN new extend soybean offered by legend seeds, at a high yielding full season maturity
