2021 SureSpeed™ and SureForce™ Soybean Trial -Central NE
What We Were Testing For:
To determine if yield goals can be maintained through enhanced planting practices, while using SureSpeed™ and SureForce™, at reduced soybean populations. The agronomy team will conduct in-season visits to evaluate emergence and seedling depth to capture insights during the 2021 growing season.
Harvest Observations and Insights:
In this trial we saw an economic advantage of $5.32/acre with the 20% reduction in planted population. The projected economic optimum suggests that a planted rate of 130k seeds/acre would be the ideal planting rate in this scenario. However, if the price of beans continues to increase, the economic optimum will shift closer towards the grower standard rate of 150k.
This is a summarization of data collected in one year and represents only what happened across the tested field in 2021. It is not a rigorous evaluation of factors that may or may not influence yield. Results may not predict future performance and may not be complete.
Population treatments shown in AgFiniti®. Treatments range from the grower’s standard rate to a rate of 20% below the standard rate, and a final treatment at 40% below the grower’s standard rate.
