Louisiana: Soybean Variety Selection is Crucial Decision

Mike Christensen
By Stuart Gauthier, Extension County Agent January 31, 2012

Many of you have already booked or may be currently booking soybean varieties to plant this spring.  Below is a list of the 2012 LA Select varieties from our LSU AgCenter Soybean Specialist, Dr. Ronnie Levy that have performed well in LSU AgCenter trials.

Mark your calendar:  We will have a soybean school at the Vermilion Extension Office on Friday, February 24, 2012.  That morning the Vermilion Rice Growers will meet at 10 am and the soybean school will begin at 11 am.

SOYBEAN VARIETY SELECTION for 2012

Making the proper variety selection is critical to maximize profit potential.  Variety selection may be the single most important decision you make.  No two farms are alike. There are differences in production practices, soil types and climatic conditions just to name a few.   You should plan to plant more than one variety.  This will help reduce the risk associated with these conditions and weather. For these reasons, it is important to gather as much data as possible before deciding which varieties to plant.

Begin with data from your area and of similar production conditions, this should include Commercial Variety Trials from Research Stations, Extension demonstrations and/or company trials.  If you are unable to find information that matches your production, look for varieties that consistently out perform others when averaged across locations.  A proven variety is one that performs well in a wide range of conditions, soil types, and locations.
