Plant Health (Growth Regulators, Biologicals, etc.), High Yield
Hefty H28X8 soybeans were planted with and without QuickRoots® on May 7, 2018 at 150,000 seeds/acre in 7.5 inch rows. QuickRoots® was applied to the seed in the planter at 4 grams QuickRoots®/140,000 seeds.
In this trial, soybeans planted with QuickRoots® had a yield increase of 1.01 bu/ac. However, since there was only one replication, we could not determine if this yield increase was significant. Further research is required to determine the effects of QuickRoots® on soybean yield.
Funding for this research project was provided by the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council. The authors would also like to thank the soybean producers who participated in this project.
