Abstract: Soybean yields ranged from 3.6-1.3 and from 3.3-2.0 T/ha for the Performance and Registration Test respectively. One hundred seed weight ranged from 20.8-11.8 and 19.7-13.0 g for the Performance and Registration Test respectively. Test weight on all cultivars and lines was well above 70 kg/Hl, the standard for Canada # 1. Lodging was not a significant factor in either test with most of the cultivar/lines standing perfectly erect. Days to maturity ranged from 126-153 for both the Performance and Registration Test. Harvest moisture ranged from 6.5-25.8 and from 8.6-22.1%. Seed quality was variable ranging from very good (1) to poor (4) on a scale of 1-5.
