Three cold-hardy varieties of soybean were grown in 2015 with a grower co-operator near Thessalon. NorthStar Genetics (Winnipeg, MB) provided seed for NSC Moosomin, NSC Gladstone, and NSC Reston.
Soybeans were planted on June 11; Moosomin and Gladstone at a rate of 67 lb/ac and Reston at 87 lb/ac. Harvest was on October 14. The varieties tested were rated for 105 – 112 days to maturity.
