There are 20 fields enrolled in the Soybean Research Verification Program this year and 7 have been planted to date. We anticipate having 17 roundup ready fields, 1 liberty link field and 2 conventional fields in the program this year. The fields that have been planted are either up or on their way.
Rainfall over the weekend stopped the planting across the state, but it got the much needed residual herbicides activated. Please refer to information in table for field specifics.
