2015 Growing Season Research Results Book is now Available!
In 2015, three farmers working with the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network evaluated ILeVO®, a Bayer Crop Science seed treatment. While this product has shown promise for addressing SDS, there are no clear guidelines to determine at what point a field will see enough response to ILeVO® to justify treatment.
The objectives of this study were
- to evaluate if the seed treatment ILeVO® provided additional benefit beyond that currently provided by variety selection and
- to determine if ILeVO® provided adequate control of SDS in early planted soybeans. Read more...

The technology holds promise as it can help increase return on investment of seed by putting more seeds where there is more potential for increased yield. Two Nebraska producers are working with Nebraska's On-Farm Research Network to better understand the yield and economic consequence of their variable-rate planting strategy. Read more...
