[Dr. Jeremy Ross, Soybean Agronomist, University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture] I’m Jeremy Ross, Soybean Agronomist with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture and today we’re going to talk about the selecting soybean varieties for 2012. [Video shows Soybean Update publication.]

We’ve just recently released the 2011 Soybean Updates. Right now they are available online, but in the next couple of weeks hopefully we will have printed copies out for distribution to the counties.

[Text - The Soybean Update includes three different publications: Full Season Roundup® Ready, Early Season Roundup® Ready, Full Season Conventional and LibertyLink.] What the updates are is three different publications that we put together every year. We have a Full Season Roundup® Ready Update, an Early Season Roundup® Ready Update and then one update that has conventional varieties and LibertyLink varieties in it. So, we try to cover the entire gamut of different production systems that are planted in Arkansas and so you should be able to find the information in those updates on selecting varieties.

[Text - What will you find in the updates. Video shows tables that are available in the publication] From again we have yield data from all the locations, two and three year averages. Included with that, we have disease ratings for some of the more common diseases that we have in the state. We have nematode ratings for soybean cyst and root knot nematodes. We have chloride sensitivity, so if you have problems with chlorides in your field to look for varieties that will tolerate the salts more than others.

[Video shows characteristic tables that are available in the publication] We also have other agronomic characteristics, hilum color, pubescence color, plant height, shattering score, lodging score. So there’s a lot of information in the updates to help you try to select varieties.

If you have any questions, contact your county agent or visit our website. [Text - If you have any questions, contact your county agent or visit www.uaex.edu.]
