On-Farm Research Network again seeking growers interested in testing ILeVO seed treatment for SDS.

Do you have a history with sudden death syndrome (SDS)? This year, the Nebraska On-Farm Research is again seeking three growers interested in testing the Bayer CropScience ILeVO seed treatment for SDS. SDS can be severe when soybeans are planted into cool, wet soils. This disease was first identified in Nebraska in 2004 and has become widespread in recent years. To be eligible to participate in this on-farm research study, farm operators must have a field with a history of widespread SDS that will be planted to soybeans this year.


Learn more about participating in the ILeVO study. The goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of ILeVO on final stand and grain yield on soybeans grown in fields

affected by sudden death syndrome and/or nematodes in Nebraska. 

Last year, over 65 Nebraska farmers completed research projects with the help of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network. You can view the results of these projects at cropwatch.unl.edu/farmresearch/resultshome. The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network provides an opportunity for growers to get questions answered about their own fields. Research typically is conducted with the producer's equipment, on the producer's land, and using the producer's management practices.

The Nebraska On-Farm Research Network provides an opportunity for farmers to test a variety of products and practices, including planting population, irrigation rates, nitrogen management decision tools, seed treatments, and biological products. View more details about each study in the On-Farm Research Network's research protocols. New study opportunities will be posted throughout April and May, so check back frequently for more options to get involved. Additionally, you are not limited to the topics presented here. If you have another research topic in mind, Nebraska Extension cropping systems educators will work with growers to design a study to address the questions that matter to you.

If you are interested in participating in this or other research studies, please contact Laura Thompson, Nebraska Extension educator and On-Farm Research Network coordinator at [email protected], 402-472-8043, or Nebraska Extension educator Keith Glewen at [email protected], 402-624-8005.
