Brief Project Summary:

Interest in alternative crops and value-added processes is increasing in Maryland. There has been a program to evaluate edible type soybean varieties in Maryland since 1995. The program was expanded in 2003 to examine the varieties under both conventional and organic production systems. This project involves field testing approximately 20 varieties and elite breeding lines at two locations. The varieties will be evaluated for yield, maturity date, lodging score, plant height, seed quality, seed size, protein and oil content.
