6000 2001 Soybean, Sorghum Grain and Silage, Grain Millet, and Summer Annual Forages Performance Tests | UGA Cooperative Extension
Research Report 676

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

Preface

This research report presents the results of the 2001 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 Marianna, Florida. For identification of the test site locations, consult the map below.

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 Agricultural and Environmental Sciences agronomists, are presented in the 2002 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 2001 performance of agronomic crops in Georgia. For information concerning the performance of other crops, refer to one of the following research reports: 2001 Corn Performance Tests, Experiment Station Research Report #675; 2000-2001 Small Grains Performance Tests, Experiment Station Research Report #673; 2000-2001 Canola Performance Tests, Experiment Station Research Report #674; and 2001 Peanut, Corn and Tobacco Performance Tests, Experiment Station Research Report #677.

The Season

Growing conditions improved during the 2001 crop season as a more normal rainfall pattern along with cooler temperatures occurred across most of the state. These favorable weather patterns were a much needed relief to Georgia farmers who battled extreme drought conditions the past three years. Although dry weather impeded planting in May, irrigation helped allow a relatively timely planting of the 2001 Georgia crops. As a result of the favorable weather, the status of crops was good to excellent throughout the growing season.

Rainfall at the six Georgia and one Florida test sites is listed below. Although the total seasonal rainfall amounts were below normal at four sites in Georgia, distribution of rainfall was good and soil moisture during the growing season was more normal than any year since 1997. Weather during the first two months of the year (data not shown) did not improve and a water shortage emergency was declared; therefore, some farmers participated in the program to take payment not to irrigate their crops during the 2001 crop year. Then most areas in the state received torrential rainfall during March and June.

Georgia farmers continue to reduce planted acres of some row crops. Soybean acres continued a five-year decline, down 6 percent, and were the lowest acreage planted since 1963. Grain sorghum, hay and forage crops maintained the increase in acreage over two years ago as farmers search for drought tolerant crops.

The row crops in Georgia were much improved over the drought damaged crops of the past three years. Although there was some damage and increased incidence in disease brought in by the Tropical Storm Allison in June, the overall benefit from the torrential rainfall far outweighed any damaging effect. A dry September and extremely dry October helped the harvest season to begin early and to progress at a rapid rate. Soybean production increased 33 percent due to a 17 percent increase in average yield over 2000. The state average soybean yield this year was estimated at 28 bushels per acre, three bu/ac off the state record of 31 bu/ac in 1994. Forage production increased 38 percent over the 2000 crop year.
