Tips for Profitable Soybean Variety
Variety selection is one of the most
important decisions a producer makes and
should be based on properly conducted
variety trials. This webcast describes four
types of trials. All have their advantages.
The presentation teaches to never use
single-location, single-year data. Instead,
use multi-location multi-year averages. This
criterion normally results in choosing
high-yielding varieties. Virginia Techís
