Roadway Lighting's Impact on Altering Soybean Growth

The objective of this research project is to investigate the relationship between roadway lighting and the growth and maturation of soybeans. This project will evaluate the light spill into the soybean field in situ and then compare those levels of light to the development, growth and yield of soybeans planted in the field compared to soybeans not affected by roadway light spill.
