The Kentucky Soybean Variety Performance Tests are conducted to provide an unbiased and objective estimate of the relative performance of soybean varieties commercially available in Kentucky. This information may be used by growers and seed producers to aid in selecting varieties that will give the highest total production in a specific situation. Soybean cultivars in the 2018 tests were entered by soybean growers, commercial companies, state and federal institutions. Forty soybean tests were planted in 2018 in Kentucky, at the eight test locations shown below. However, due to weed pressure, one location was discontinued.
