I encourage everyone to take a hard look at the Xtend soybean varieties this summer. I have heard some companies saying negative things about the varieties and the spraying system. I personally have nothing but good things to say. This picture of Channel 2017 R2X in my plot speaks for itself. The newest highest yielding genetics will only be in Xtend varieties going forward. Walking this plot tonight was very eye opening. All 6 Xtend varieties are ahead of their RR2 counterparts in every category. Growth stage, height, root development, stem diameter, and nodulation.
