To help close the soybean yield gap between average and record yields, this project will break down management practices based on the specific needs of different areas within a field. It will define the yield variability within a field as high, medium and low; identify seeding rates that can help optimize yield; better understand the role biologicals can play in crop nutrient utilization; and evaluate the economics of site-specific management compared to whole-field management practices.
