The soybean is one of the most important crops, in which growing area is increasing worldwide as well as in Austria. Consequently, questions on practical soybean growing are brought up by farmers. Therefore, in order to have regional agronomic results the provincial chamber of agriculture of upper Austria (Landwirtschaftskammer Oberösterreich) is conducting field experiments in farmers fields. The aim of this study is to find out, whether these applied experiments could be analysed with scientific methods. These experiments in farmers fields are focusing on the most important plant cultivation questions, such as the choice of variety, the row space, the planting date and the planting rate. Most of the soybean experiments conducted on large farmers plots by the provincial chamber of agriculture of upper Austria (Landwirtschaftskammer Oberösterreich) could be evaluated statistically. Significant variety effects were found in plant height, pod set height, grain yield, 1000 seed weight, protein and sugar content. ES Mentor was the highest yielding variety across several environments in the 2011 growing season. Significant differences were also found between three environments in agronomic and seed quality characters such as plant height, pod set height, yield, oil, and protein content. In the row spacing, planting rate and late planting experiments, no statistically significant influence could be established neither on agronomic nor on seed quality features; in these questions, more data are necessary for precise evaluations. In summary, farmers fields experiments are providing valuable results which are useful for practical agronomic consulting in soybean production.
