October 16 – Yield data is now available for the Early Planted Maturity Group IV test at the E.V. Smith Research and Extension Center, Plant Breeding Unit, Tallassee, AL. This trial was exposed to two herbicides, glyphosate and dicamba. Most of the entries in the trial were Extend soybeans and were not sensitive to the herbicides. However, there were twelve varieties that did not have resistance to one or both herbicides. Each exibitited visual symptoms of herbicide injury. One variety was damaged severely enough that it’s data was omitted. The eleven remaining varieties yielded much better than anticipated. Some were even statistically equal to the top yielding variety. It is unknown whether the injury observed significantly reduced yield in the eleven remaining varieties. Therefore, they are included and identified with the type of herbicide in which they are sensitive.
September 22 – The soybean trials at the Gulf Coast Research and Extension Center in Fairhope, AL received damaging wind and rain from Hurricane Sally. Due to the extent of the damage, it is anticipated that data will not be available for any of the cotton trials at this location for the 2020 season.
The soybean trials at the Brewton Agricultural Research Unit in Brewton, AL received an exceptional amount of rain from Hurricane Sally but did not have as much wind as the Gulf Coast Research and Extension Center. It is anticipated that the Brewton soybean trials will be harvested.
