Yield adjusted to 13% moisture

MS= Varieties that have any MS letter in common are not statistically different in yield (based on 95% confidence)

*Treated plots sprayed with Miravis Top @13.7 fl oz/a + 0.25% Induce @ R3 growth stage

JAX varieties planted May 24, sprayed Aug. 3, and harvested Oct. 19

RECM varieties planted May 25, sprayed Aug. 2, and harvested Nov. 4

Wheat-beans varieteis planted June 24, sprayed Aug. 27, and harvested Nov. 9

NONE, LOW, MOD, and HIGH is a relative ranking of disease severity at each location. Other diseases noted: SDS = Sudden Death Syndrome

Soybean Cyst Nematode rateds as Resistant (R), Moderately Resistant (MR), Moderately Susceptible (MS), Susceptible (S), or High Susceptible (HS) to HG Type 1.2.5.7/Race 2

Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 6%, averaged 2%; Target spot  from 0 – 2%, averaged 1%; Brown spot  from 7 – 12%, averaged 9% 

Disease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 6%, averaged 2%; Target spot was not observed; Brown spot  from 10 – 16%, averaged 13%

Disease ratings & yield data compiled by Dr. Heather Kelly, Rachel Guyer, and Wesley Crowder from replicated plots at 2 locations
