Scandia Experiments - 2015 Annual Report

The 2015 soybean experiments at Scandia (Kansas) were established under dryland and irrigated conditions. Five treatments were evaluated:

CP=Common practices, CF= comprehensive fertilization, PI= production intensification, EI= ecological intensification (CF+PI), AD= advanced plus.

Results indicated that, in relative terms, dryland presented a larger yield gap from minimum to maximum yielding treatments (36%, CP-CF vs. PI-EI-AD) relative to the irrigated environment (24%, CP-CF vs. EI-AD). In absolute terms, dryland presented a measurable yield gap of 11 bu ac-1; while at the irrigated site the gap was two-fold greater, 22 bu ac-1:
