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.

red-shoulder stink bug markings
Redbanded Stink Bug Identification
Adults are 10-12 mm and brilliant green, but as they get older, they may appear more yellow. Adults normally have two stripes across the back of the thorax, one yellow and one dark red to purple or even black .
soybean trials
2010 Louisiana Soybean Variety Trials
The Louisiana Soybean Performance Trials are conducted annually by scientists of the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station (LAES) to evaluate commercial soybean varieties and experimental lines for yield potential, agronomic performance and disease reaction. The trials are conducted at six LAES research stations that represent the major soybean production regions in Louisiana. Inclusion of an entry in the trials does not constitute an endorsement by the LAES.

EXTRACTS from soybeans and grains find beneficial uses
Dr. Cristina Sabliov, working with a team of scientists in the LSU AgCenter’s Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, has developed a continuous microwave system that can be used to extract beneficial compounds, such as isoflavone oils, from soy flour.

New AgCenter team studies water resources, efficiency
The AgCenter has formed a water resource team at the Red River Research Station near Bossier City, Louisiana. The group’s members are studying various issues to help producers manage irrigation systems more efficiently and maintain good water quality.
Extension Demonstrations
Extension demonstrations are conducted annually in numerous parishes. The objective of these demonstrations is to evaluate new varieties and continue evaluating proven or recommended varieties under “real world” situations. These large-scale demonstrations are conducted primarily by the parish county agent with assistance from the state specialist and seed dealers.

2012 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.
2012 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.
LSRVP field
Louisiana Soybean Verification Program (LSRVP)
A soybean verification program was initiated in 1994 to verify research by the LSU AgCenter at the farm level. Fields are selected statewide, including various cropping systems, and are monitored weekly. Data are collected throughout the growing season, and cooperators follow LSU AgCenter recommendations until harvest. Historically, LSRVP fields outyield the statewide average by 12 bushels per acre.
