FIRST's 2022 Top 30 Soybean Performances

FIRST has compiled the Top 30 Soybean variety performances in 3 maturity ranges across all testing areas.

Congratulations to these participants that recorded top soybean variety performances in the 2022 FIRST independent yield trials. Products entered in a minimum of 3 regions, with 4 locations each, were included in the analysis. Maturity ranges are listed in the heading of each table. The results are compiled from trials across all FIRST testing regions. 

More about the top performance calculations:

  • Avg. Yield -- grain yield, adjusted to standard grain moisture. Average of all locations in which the product was tested in 2022.
  • Avg. Yield Advantage - comparing product yield to test average yield.
Top 24 Soybean Yield Performances, maturity group 00-2.0, out of 44 varieties.
