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 July 27, and harvested Oct. 19

RECM varieties planted May 25, sprayed July 26, and harvested Oct. 11

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 2

Disease ratings at JAX: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 13%, averaged 3%; Target spot  from 0 – 14%, averaged 7%; Brown spot  from 10 – 17%, averaged 13%

Disease ratings at RECM: Frogeye leaf spot ranged from 0 – 9%, averaged 2%; Target spot  from 0 – 19%, averaged 10%; Brown spot  from 7 – 21%, averaged 13%
