1999 Soybean, Sorghum Grain and Silage, Grain Millet, and Summer Annual Forages Performance Tests (RR 663)

J. LaDon Day, Anton E. Coy, and Paul A. Rose, Editors

Preface

This research report presents the results of the 1999 statewide performance tests of soybean, sorghum grain and silage, grain millet, and summer annual forages. The tests for various evaluations were conducted at several or all of the following locations: Tifton, Plains, and Midville in the Coastal Plain region; Griffin and Athens in the Piedmont region; Calhoun in the Limestone Valley region; and Quincy and Marianna, Florida. For identification of the test site locations, consult the map inside the back cover of this report.

Agronomic information such as plant height, lodging, disease occurrence, etc. is listed along with the yield data. Information concerning planting and harvest dates, soil type, and culture and fertilization practices used in each trial is included in footnotes. Since the average yield for several years gives a better indication of a variety's potential than one year's data, multiple-year yield summaries have been included.

In order to have a broad base of information, a number of varieties, including experimental lines, are included in the trials, but this does not imply that all are recommended for Georgia. Varieties best suited to a specific area or for a particular purpose, and agreed upon by College of Agriculture agronomists, are presented in the 2000 Spring Planting Schedule for Georgia (available from your county extension office). Pesticides used for production practices are included for the benefit of the reader and do not imply any endorsement or preferential treatment by the University of Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station. For additional information, contact your local county extension agent or the nearest experiment station.

The least significant difference (LSD) at the 10 percent level has been included in the tables to aid in comparing hybrids. If the yields of any two hybrids differ by the LSD value or more, they may be considered different in yield ability. Bolding is used in the performance tables to indicate hybrids with yields statistically equal to the highest yielding entry in the test. The standard error (Std. Err.) of an entry mean is included at the bottom of each table to provide a general indicator of the level of precision of each experiment. The lower the value of the standard error of the entry mean, the more precise the experiment.

This report is one of five publications presenting the 1999 performance of agronomic crops in Georgia. For more information concerning other crops, refer to one of the following research reports: 1999 Corn Performance Tests (Report 661), 1998-99 Small Grains Performance Tests (Report 659), 1998-99 Canola Performance Tests (Report 660), and 1999 Peanut, Cotton, and Tobacco Performance Tests (Report 664).

This report, along with performance test information on other crops, is also available at our web site www.swvt.uga.edu. Additional information may be obtained by writing J. LaDon Day, Crop and Soil Sciences Department, University of Georgia, Georgia Station, Griffin, GA 30223-1797.

The Season

Growing conditions did not improve during 1999 as below normal rainfall and high temperatures occurred across the state. Although dry weather impeded early planting, clear weather in April and May allowed a relatively timely planting of the 1999 Georgia crops. As a result of unfavorable weather, the status of crops remained fair to poor throughout the season and much irrigation was required.

The severe drought conditions that Georgia has been experiencing since April 1998 continued throughout the growing season. Rainfall at the six test sites is listed below. Total seasonal rainfall amounts were below normal at all test locations with one site receiving only 60 percent of long-term average.

Georgia farmers continue to reduce planted acres of some row crops. Soybean acres continued a 3-year decline in acreage, down 10 percent, while grain sorghum and forage crop acres remained steady.

Overall, the 1999 growing season was extremely difficult for growers. The harvest season was timely due to a very dry October and November. Grain sorghum and forage production increased 32 percent and 17 percent, respectively, over 1998, while soybean production declined 22 percent from 1998.

1 Yields calculated at 13% moisture.
2 Lodging rating: Rated 1 (all plants erect) to 5 (over 80% of plants down).
3 Seed quality rating: Rated 1 (very good) to 5 (very poor).
4 Shattering rating: Rated 1 (no shattering) to 5 (>50% pods shattered).
5 CV = 18.1% and df for EMS = 44.
6 CV = 9.3% and df for EMS = 30.
7 The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore, a LSD value was not calculated.
8 CV = 10.8% and df for EMS = 18.

Bolding within each test denotes entries with yields equal to the highest yielding entry based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).

Harvested: November 4, 1999.
Seeding Rate: Eight viable seeds per foot in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Tifton loamy sand.
Soil Test: P = Medium, K = Medium, and pH = 6.2.
Fertilization: 14 lb N, 28 lb P2O5, and 54 lb K2O/acre.
Previous Crop: Cotton.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; two applications of Roundup Ultra used for weed control; Nemacure and Lorsban used for insect control; irrigated 3 inches.

NOTE: Yields from the 1999 test at this site were low due to prolonged heat and drought. The results from this trial accurately reflect the soybean variety performance at this location during the 1999 season. However, because extremely low yields may unduly influence long-term averages, this data will not be included in two- or three-year summary tables in this or future publications.
1 Yields calculated at 13% moisture.
2 Lodging rating: Rated 1 (all plants erect) to 5 (over 80% of plants down).
3 Seed quality rating: Rated 1 (very good) to 5 (very poor).
4 Shattering rating: Rated 1 (no shattering) to 5 (>50% pods shattered).
5 CV = 20.3% and df for EMS = 78.
6 The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = .10 probability level; therefore, a LSD value was not calculated.
7 CV = 16.6% and df for EMS = 48.
8 CV = 15.2% and df for EMS = 102.

Bolding within each test denotes entries with yields equal to the highest yielding entry based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: June 25, 1999.
Harvested: Maturity Group V - October 28, 1999.
Maturity Group VI - October 29, 1999.
Maturity Groups VII & VIII - October 29, 1999.
Seeding Rate: Nine viable seeds per foot in 36" rows.
Soil Type: Dothan loamy fine sand.
Soil Test: P = Medium, K = Medium, and pH = 6.1.
Fertilization: 0 lb N, 50 lb P2O5, and 100 lb K2O/acre.
Previous Crop: Wheat.
Management: Strip tilled; Trilin, Classic, and Blazer used for weed control; Dimilin, Orthene, and Asana XL used for insect control.

1 IVDMD (in vitro dry matter disappearance) is an indicator of quality and is positively related to animal digestibility (higher values indicate higher digestibility). Samples used for IVDMD determination were collected for all entries of a replicated trial at the same state of reproductive development (soft dough).

Bolding indicates entries yielding equal to highest yielding entry within a column based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: April 23, 1999.
Harvested: August 3, 1999.
Seeding Rate: 100,000 seed/acre in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Tifton loamy sand.
Soil Test: P = HIgh, K = Medium, and pH = 5.5.
Fertilization: Preplant: 35 lb N, 70 lb P2O5, and 105 lb K2O/acre. Sidedress: 50 lb N/acre.
Previous Crop: Soybean.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; Aatrex, Permit, and one cultivation used for weed control.
Test conducted by A. E. Coy and M. D. Pippin.

1 CV = 11.6% and df for EMS = 18.
2 The F-test indicated no statistical differences at the alpha = 0.1 probability level; therefore a LSD value was not calculated.

Bolding indicates entries yielding equal to highest yielding entry within a column based on Fisher's protected LSD (P = 0.10).
Planted: May 26, 1999.
Harvested: September 1, 1999.
Seeding Rate: 125,000 seed/acre in 30" rows.
Soil Type: Cecil sandy clay loam.
Soil Test: P = Medium, K = Medium, and pH = 6.7.
Fertilization: Preplant: 28 lb N, 56 lb P2O5, and 84 lb K2O/acre. Sidedress: 100 lb N/acre.
Previous Crop: Soybean.
Management: Moldboard plowed and rototilled; cultivated once for weed control.
