Map of north central region average soybean yield
Map of soybean average seeding rate
Data from 2014 and 2015 paint a picture of many aspects of soybean production in the north central region. Now researchers are asking producers to contribute data from their 2016 production cycle to help identify factors keeping individual fields from reaching their full yield potential. See this week's story for how you can participate in this benchmark soybean study and put your field on the map. Also find more maps illustrating what researchers have learned in the first two years of this study.
