Soybean Field Trial

This on-farm trial explored the effect of foliar fertilizer treatment on soybean yield. The trial was conducted on a 5-acre plot with uniform soil characters and normal soil test results. The treatment was applied between V6 and R1 growth stages. The foliar treatment consisted of 5 gallons of 5-15-15, 1 quart of EDTA 6% manganese, and 1 pint of 10% boron. At harvest, the results showed an increase of approximately 5.5 bushels per acre over the control.
