The purpose of this publication is to provide performance data of the many soybean varieties offered for sale in Virginia. These data should be of benefit to producers and agribusinesses in making selections of varieties for their use. It is realized that not all varieties that are offered for sale in Virginia are included in these tests. There is no implication that varieties not included are inferior in any way, but only that they have not been tested.

Virginia experienced little stress in 2021. May was very dry at Blackstone, Eastern Shore, and Orange, but rainfall resumed in June. September was generally dry in all locations except Suffolk. As a result of timely rainfall at all sites, yields were generally very good throughout Virginia for full-season and double-crop plantings.
