  title={Soybean Field Losses as Influenced by Harvest Delays},
  author={Bryan Philbrook and Edward S. Oplinger},
Conflicts for time and machinery can postpone harvests beyond the initial time when optimum conditions exist. This study was conduced to determine the effects of delaying soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] harvests on grain losses in the field. Field studies were conducted each year from 1983 to 1986 at Arlington, WI. Two cultivars from each of maturity groups (MG) 0, I, and II, one more susceptible to lodging than the other, were used. Initial harvest for each maturity group began 3 to 7 d… CONTINUE READING
