This publication reports the agronomic performance of entries in the 2002 South Dakota performance trials for conventional, or non-Roundup Ready, and Roundup Ready soybean varieties. Successful soybean production is greatly affected by variety selection for a given growing area. Important factors in selecting a variety 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) is given to assist in making variety selections.
