Successful soybean production is greatly affected by variety selection for a given growing area. This publication reports the agronomic performance of entries in the 2001 South Dakota performance trials for conventional (non-Roundup Ready) and RoundupReady™ soybean varieties. Important factors in variety selection include yield, maturity, plant height, lodging resistance, and Phytophthora root rot resistance. In the case of public varieties, additional information including emergence, shattering, and iron chlorosis scores (Table A) are available to assist in making variety selections.
