2012 Soybean Variety Performance Trials
Applications are being accepted applications for the 2012 Soybean Variety Preformance Trial.
Soybean Variety Yields and Production Practices
2014 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.

Researchers look for biological controls for aflatoxin
Of all the issues farmers must contend with, aflatoxin-contaminated grain can be one of the most costly at harvest. Several strains of Aspergillus fungi produce aflatoxins, which arecomplex, harmful pathogens that attack several crops, including field corn.

Scientists look to molecular markers to speed wheat breeding
Many wheat varieties developed by seed companies aren’t suited for Louisiana because the warm, humid Gulf South conditions encourage disease development.
AgCenter weed scientist Al Orgeron checks on soybeans
Rotating soybeans with sugarcane can add to bottom line
Growing soybeans in rotation with sugarcane is not new to south Louisiana,but doing so at a profit is creating increased interest with some growers, said AgCenter weed scientist Al Orgeron.
Looking for the ‘perfect’ soybean
The “perfect” soybean would havegreat disease and herbicide resistance,excellent drought and salt tolerance, beable to withstand insect pests and behigh-yielding. And LSU AgCenter plantbreeder Blair Buckley is on a quest tofind it.

Entomologist tries to stay ahead of insect resistance to Bt corn
Fall armyworms and corn borers have long been a concern for Louisiana corn growers. While farmers in theU.S. have planted transgenic Bt corn varieties since the 1990s to biologically control pests, staying ahead of their ability to develop resistance is a constant battle.

Soybean Yield Formation: What Controls It and How It Can Be Improved
Soybean is the most important oilseed crop grown in the world (56% of world oil seed production: U.S. Soybean Export Council, 2008). Major producers are the United States (33% of world production), followed closely by Brazil (28%) and Argentina (21%). Remaining producers are China, India and a few other countries.

2013 Soybean Extension Demonstrations
Extension demonstrations are conducted annually in numerous parishes. The objectives of these demonstrations are to evaluate new varieties and continue evaluating proven or recommended varieties under “real world” situations.
2012 Louisian soybean and grain report
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.
