Subject: Interesting observation

Northeast Missouri
Because of limited planting days there were many soybeans planted the day before the hurricane in June. We actually call them "hurricane beans". I've been noticing something interesting in the different fields I have access to. I have some 3.8 and 4.0 beans in the same field and I know my neighbors plant similar maturity beans. All are river bottom beans and all were no-tilled. The neighbor's beans have started to yellow for a week and mine are just starting to lighten up but are still pretty green. The only differences I am aware of are they used Liberty beans and I used Xtends. Mine were drilled and theirs are in 15" rows. All were planted the same day in the same conditions. What would cause the difference in maturity? The neighbors sprayed early with Liberty and made a late clean up pass, my beans were sprayed once early post with Engenia and Zidua. Not saying one will be better, just curious what would cause the difference in maturity. There was no damage from the dicamba.
