Successful soybean production in a given growing area is greatly affected by variety selection. This publication reports the agronomic performance of entries in the 2003 South Dakota performance trials for conventional (non-Roundup Ready) and Roundup Ready™ 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 given.
