Summary: This presentation describes changes in soybean cultivars that have occurred over the past 80 years of breeding in North America. The talk is mostly focused on the results from a series of experiments that tested in common environments soybean varieties that were released from the 1920ís to the present time. These results document that a large proportion of the yield gain observed in farmerís fields are the result of improved genetics.

Responsibility: United Soybean Board (USB) farmer-leaders develop and maintain partnerships with U.S. land grant universities and U.S. ag-focused research organizations such as the Plant Management Network to increase the transfer of checkoff-funded applied and practical production research information to U.S. soybean farmers.
