A good soybean crop begins with good seed, but there are many factors that can affect the quality of soybean seed.

The latest Focus on Soybean Webcast presentation, titled “Preserving Soybean Seed Quality” by Professor John Rupe, a plant pathologist at the University of Arkansas, will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners understand and manage soybean seed quality.

In this Webcast, Rupe describes the differences between seed germination and seed vigor and how seed vigor is measured. He then covers the major abiotic and biotic factors that affect soybean seed quality, general methods to preserve seed quality, and tips for growers buying seed.

This 24-minute presentation is open access through April 30, 2012. Viewers can also opt to see a 4-minute executive summary version of this presentation. This shorter executive summary version is permanently open access courtesy of the United Soybean Board.
