SOYVA Program Variety Updates Variety Performance Tests
Choosing the best soybean variety is one of the most critical components of soybean
production. The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service provides two methods
of selecting a soybean variety. The first is through published updates that show variety
yield trials of most all of the major soybean varieties available in Arkansas. Secondly,
you can utilize a computer program developed by Extension specialists and updated each
year to select the best soybean variety based on your individual field history.
SOYVA, an Extension computerized variety selection program, can assist in making these
field-specific variety selection decisions. Presently SOYVA sorts through over 100 adapted
soybean varieties in Maturity Groups (MG) IV-VII and makes variety recommendations based
on responses to specific conditions described by the user. Soybean producers are
encouraged to use this publication and SOYVA when selecting varieties for the different
production systems. Contact your county Extension agent for details concerning SOYVA. The
SOYVA program is available to download free of charge.
