Product and Agronomy Research (PAR) Results: Second in a Series of Three

BY Dairyland Seed Agronomy Team

This week’s newsletter features Part 2 in our 3-Part series of reports from our 2021 Product and Agronomy Research (PAR) trials. This week we are sharing the details of the Soybean Seed Treatment Study in Wabash, IN.

WABASH SOYBEAN SEED TREATMENT Study
Description:

Early season seedling diseases and pests can wreak havoc on soybean stands. Soybean seed treatments can help preserve stand that would otherwise be lost to these early season pests. In this study we examined the efficacy of our seed treatment offerings as compared to an untreated check. The varieties used in the study are DSR-2999E™, planted April 4 and DSR-3058E™, planted on April 16, both varieties planted at 130,000 seeds per acre.

Treatments:
  • Untreated seed
  • LumiGEN® premium package
  • C1019FI premium external offer
  • LumiGEN® premium package + ILEVO®
Results:

CONCLUSION:

The premium treatment packages showed an increase of 1.5 bushels over the untreated check and the premium treatment + ILEVO showed a 3.4 bushel increase over the untreated check. There is no known SCN issues at this testing site. Seed treatments continue to show the ability to preserve yield potential of soybeans by protecting the plants from early season diseases and pests. Past soybean seed treatment trials at this site have shown an increase in yield of 1 to 2 bushels over untreated checks. As more additions are made to seed treatments we will continue to study these treatments at this location.
