This research report presents the results of the 2016 statewide performance tests of soybean, sorghum grain and silage, 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; and Calhoun in the Limestone Valley region. The University of Georgia soybean variety trials are irrigated. In addition, dryland soybean variety trials were conducted at four locations (Midville, Plains, Tifton, and Griffin), and irrigated, ultra-late planted soybean variety trials were conducted at Midville and Attapulgus. All are included in this report. Agronomic information, such as plant height, lodging, and disease occurrence, 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.
