CSU conducts variety performance trials to provide unbiased and reliable information to Colorado producers so they can select the best varieties for their farming conditions. Variable climatic conditions, innovations from biotechnology, acquisitions and mergers of seed companies, and rapid evolution of new varieties means that up-to-date and timely unbiased crop performance information is increasingly important to Colorado soybean producers.

The accumulated results for years show that there is excellent potential for increasing soybean production in Colorado. This is even more notable because several biofuel companies have expressed interest in constructing crusher/processor facilities in Colorado and soybeans may become the biofuel crop of preference.
