Late planting of early-maturing soybeans in Manitoba (2015-2017)
Kristen Podolsky MacMillan, University of Manitoba
Soybean varieties currently available in Manitoba range in maturity from 107-123 days. The relatively recent availability of very early maturing soybeans could allow farmers to plant beyond current seeding deadlines. The objective of this study is to evaluate the potential for planting soybeans beyond current seeding deadlines. Three soybean varieties of varying maturity (very early, early and mid) were evaluated within three seeding windows (normal, late and very late) in each of the three crop insurance test areas of Manitoba.
Another year of study is planned for 2017 and detailed reported will be prepared by Manitoba Soybean and Pulse Growers based on three year data.
