Methodology

Soybeans were planted in 30-inch rows at 141,000 seeds/ac in Brookings Co. on May 10, 2023. Before planting the seed was treated with BioCore at 1.98 grams per pound of seed. The soybeans were planted in five treatment strips that were 120 ft. wide. Soybeans were harvested on September 19, 2023, and yield analysis was conducted on the middle two passes from each treatment strip. The field was classified into two different yield zones, which were low (<35 bu/ac) and medium (35-55 bu/ac). This report evaluates the medium yield zone.

Results

The BioCore seed treatment had no significant effect on the soybean yields (90% confidence interval) since the difference between treatments was less than 4.0 bu/ac (Figure 1 & Table 1).  Additional trials with this product are needed in the future.
