CHARLO, Hamilton César de O et al. Agronomic performance of ten vegetable soybean strains, in Jaboticabal, Brazil. Hortic. Bras. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.3, pp. 349-353. ISSN 0102-0536. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-05362011000300015.
The objective was to evaluate the performance of ten vegetable soybean strains, in field. The experiment was arranged in randomized blocks with ten treatments (strain) and five replications. Plots comprised four rows measuring five meters in length. Sprinkle irrigation was used. The following strains were used: JLM003; JLM004; JLM010; JLM018; JLM019; JLM024; JLM030; BR36; BR155 and BRS216. The average earliness, insertion height of first pod, number of pods without grain, number of pods with one grain, number of pods with two grains, number of pods with three grains, fresh weight of pods with one, two and three grains, fresh weight of 100 seeds from pods with one, two and three grains, weight of no marketable pods and marketable production of pods per plant were evaluated. Results showed that the strain JLM010 is the best for vegetable soybean production, with total yield of immature grains of 12.53 t ha-1 and higher fresh weight of 100 seeds.
