UT AgResearch & Education Center Tests: All soybean variety trials were conducted in each of the physiographic regions of the state. Tests were conducted at the Agricenter International Research Center (Memphis), Highland Rim (Springfield), East Tennessee (Knoxville), Milan (Milan), Middle Tennessee (Spring Hill) and West Tennessee (Jackson) AgResearch & Education Centers.
Entries were divided into the following tests based on relative maturity: MG-3 (relative maturity 3.0-3.9), MG-4E (relative maturity 4.0–4.5), MG-4L (relative maturity: 4.6-4.9), and MG-5 (relative maturity: 5.0-5.9).
Each test was treated using conventional herbicides in order to provide a head to head comparison across herbicide tolerances. Tests of MG-3 were not grown at the Memphis location. Duplicate plantings of all tests were made at the Milan and Highland Rim RECs for performance testing with and without irrigation.
