2022 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials - Yield Results Available Online as Sortable Tables

2022 OSU Soybean Performance Trials

The 2022 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials is now available online at: The web-based version of the trial data includes sortable tables, and the information can also be downloaded as a spreadsheet.

The purpose of the Ohio Soybean Performance Trials is to evaluate soybean varieties for yield and other agronomic characteristics. This evaluation gives soybean producers comparative information for selecting the best varieties for their unique production systems. Soybean varieties were tested in six Ohio counties: Henry, Sandusky, Mercer, Union, Preble, and Clinton. Varieties were grouped, tested, and analyzed by maturity (early and late). Conventional (non-GMO), RoundUp Ready, Enlist, XtendFlex, sulfonylurea-tolerant, and Liberty Link/Glyphosate tolerant were tested in the same block to allow for head-to-head comparisons.

This year, we tested 128 commercially available soybean varieties representing 17 brands. Yields were as high as 106.5 bu/acre in Henry County (mid-May planting date and 8 inches of rainfall in August) and as low as 23.3 bu/acre in Union County (June planting date and dry conditions).
