SoyMVP Crop Update

SoyMVP fields currently range from the R3 to R5 growth stage. SDS does not appear that it's going to be as serious of a problem as I originally expected it to be. It showed up quickly but never progressed like I thought it would. There is no more than 10% severity in any of the fields in our program, although I have seen it at much higher rates when traveling through the state.

I am currently getting pod counts on all of our fields to compare numbers across populations on a pod per plant and a pod per unit area basis. I am coming up with some interesting numbers, which I will expand upon here on the blog once I get counts completed in all fields.
