The latest agronomic performance data of pulse and soybean varieties is now available online! In 2022, 19 herbicide tolerant soybean, nine conventional soybean, nine dry bean (four wide-row and five narrow-row), 10 field pea and three faba bean trials were conducted. Nearly 200 varieties were tested across all trials.
Soybean and dry bean trials were sponsored and coordinated by MPSG. Field pea and faba bean trials were co-sponsored by MPSG and the Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET), and coordinated by MCVET.
The Highlighter Test
- In one colour, highlight the LSD value at the bottom of the Yields by Location table for your chosen location(s) and highlight the yields of your chosen check variety (it can be any variety of your choosing).
- In a second colour, highlight the varieties that yielded more than your designated check by the LSD amount. For example, with an LSD of 10, variety yields must differ by 10% from the check to be significantly different.
- In a third colour, do the same for varieties that yielded less than the check by the LSD amount.
New Soybean Highlighter Test Tool
MPSG’s On-Farm Network (OFN) is a network of farm-scale research with a focus on pulse and soybean crops. It is fully funded and directed by Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers.
All research in this network is based on three important principles:
- Participatory – conducted on-farm with farmers
- Precise – produces data that are unbiased, accurate and robust
- Proactive – delivers results to guide management decisions, aiming to improve the productivity and profitability of the farm operation
The overall goal is to test new products and practices for pulse and soybean production while empowering farmers to conduct simple, reliable research on their farms.
On Tuesday, we hosted the On-Farm Network Appreciation Dinner to share the results of this research with farmer participants. This event was co-hosted by MPSG, Manitoba Crop Alliance and Manitoba Canola Growers Association.
Single-site reports for each trial conducted through the OFN are available in the On-Farm Network Database, now updated with 2022 reports. Sort and filter by crop, year, trial type and region in Manitoba to find results applicable to your farm. Or search for trials using the interactive map. After 11 years of on-farm testing, this database remains a valuable resource for local soybean and pulse production research.
We hope you enjoy browsing through these results. We’re excited to share them. If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss any of these results further, please reach out to us.
Wishing you and your families a safe and happy holiday season!
