From the MSU Extension Service: Over 50 non-GMO soybean varieties are being compared under organic production systems in our region at multiple sites. These varieties are a mix of tried and true brands, new industry releases, and experimental lines from university breeding programs.
You are invited to join other organic producers to view and voice your preference about characteristics that are desirable to you (pod set, plant height, canopy closure, competitiveness, etc). This information (along with yield) will be useful to identify varieties in the breeding program to move forward for seed production and release.
The tours will take place on Thursday, September 25th. For more information and to register, please see the brochure for the event.
