A special thank you to Albert and George Devloo for their cooperation.

Field Notes: This trial experienced some hail damage just prior to flowering the hail had damaged stems and leaves that delayed maturity and also left opportunity for a flush of weeds so a third pass of roundup was applied, that turned out to be a great decision as field recovered over time and weed control was excellent. Once again 2018 fell short of rainfall later in the season for soybeans. S006W5 was used as a check that yielded fairly similar across the trial that tells us the varieties were well represented with the exception of a small corner on the north east that may have affected block 4
