Disease and Insect Management in Double Crop Soybean
Graduate student, Holly Nowlin, is investigating strategies to manage insects and disease in double crop soybean production. Her research is funded by Ohio Soybean Council.
Effect of Cover Crops on Soybean Disease, Insects, and Slugs
Graduate student, Keeley Overmyer, is evaluating the effect of rye:oat cover crop planting date and termination timing on soybean insects, diseases, and slugs. Her project is funded by USDA NIFA and the Ohio Soybean Council.
Variable Rate Seeding
Graduate students, Emma Matcham and Will Hamman, are investigating variable rate seeding soybean. What is the best way to determine seeding rate zones? What seeding rates should be used for each zone? How does plant structure change with seeding rate? These are just a few of the questions they hope to answer with their research.
Influence of Grass Cover Crop in Continuous Soybean Production
Research associate and graduate student, Wayde Looker, is investigating the effect of a rye:oat cover crop in continuous soybean production.
Yield results are available for Marion County and Southern Region (Preble and Clinton County) of the 2018 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials. Northern Ohio and Mercer County results will be available soon after harvest.
