Soybean Variety Yields and Production Practices
2015 Recommendations. Each year the LSU AgCenter tests commercial soybean varieties that are entered in yield tests by private seed companies. This publication provides information about results of those tests at various locations across the state. For best results using this guide, refer to the tables for variety yield results and pick the location fitting your situation -- or if your farm does not fit any location, choose varieties that performed well at multiple locations.

Board requests four new projects
Every year LSU AgCenter scientists make requests to the Louisiana Soybean and Feed Grain Research and Promotion Board for money to fund research and extension projects. But this year the board made requests of their own for four new projects.

Plant Disease Management Guide
This guide for 2015 contains suggestions for management of the most important or more prevalent diseases of Louisiana plants. It includes information on fungicides, bactericides and nematicides, as well as safety precautions for using them.
Trey Price, a plant pathologist with the LSU AgCenter
Odds are low for grain sorghum disease, but still scout
While disease can wreak havoc on soybean or cotton crops, grain sorghum may be less likely to suffer from a disease outbreak. Trey Price, a plant pathologist at the Macon Ridge Research Station in Winnsboro, said the odds are low that a grower will have to make a fungicide application for disease control in grain sorghum most years.

Iron may help combat Cercospora leaf blight in soybeans
Foliar applications of iron may provide some opportunities to reduce the impact of Cercospora leaf blight in soybeans.
New feed grains field guide
New feed grains field guide will be ready early 2016
Tackling weed, insect and disease problems quickly is critical for farmers to avoid damage and maintain good yields. That’s why the LSU AgCenter is producing a feed grains field guide that growers and consultants can use to easily determine solutions.
Jim Griffin, weed scientist
Griffin’s career spans agriculture’s weed science revolution
About three decades ago, as fields in Louisiana choked on nearly uncontrollable weed populations, the 1981 state average soybean yield was a low 21 bushels per acre.

2015 Louisiana Soybean & Grain Research & Promotion Board Report
Since 2005, the Soybean and Grain Research and Promotion Board has provided monies for an AgCenter Communications project to develop a research report highlighting board-funded projects. This publication serves as a report to soybean and small grain producers about the results from LSU AgCenter projects that their check-off dollars funded. It also serves as a marketing piece for the board and grain industry.
Soybean board
From the Louisiana Soybean and Grain Research and Promotion Board
The Louisiana Soybean and Grain Research and Promotion Board directs your checkoff funds to research projects that address Louisiana’s most important production and marketing issues.
