    Soybean Herbicide, Row Spacing, and Cultivar Selection Trial

Abstract

Crop management of soybean has been extensively researched for the past decade. Farmers and researchers always are looking into strategies to improve yield by finetuning plant population, pest management, and cultivar selection. It is known that row spacing can greatly affect weed suppression and improve yield or tentatively decrease costs with herbicides. Seed companies seek to develop alternatives in growth traits and environmental stability, which can contribute to weed management. Farmers have more flexibility to balance investment and yield by managing their unique production system. Aiming to better understand and learn the interactions between the herbicide program, as well as row spacing and cultivar selection, a trial was conducted in Lewis, Iowa, where the weed pressure is very challenging.
