The response of the treatments will be will be characterized by observing the growth, development, and yield of the soybeans. The effects that herbicide rate, herbicide combinations, and soybean growth stage have on injury will also be determined.  The interaction between these herbicides and varieties will be characterized to provide soybean growers with more information on how unintended exposure will impact yield and profitability.
