Evaluation of Yield and Yield Related Agronomic Traits of Different Introduced Soybean (Glycine Max L. [Merrill] Varieties in Pawe District, Northern Ethiopia

Asmamaw Amogne


A field experiment was carried out in 2014 and 2015 cropping season on nine soybean varieties with two checks of total eleven varieties in Randomized Complete Block design with the aim of evaluating the performance of yield and yield contributing characters of introduced soybean (Glycine max L.) varieties considering number of days to 50% flowering, nodule number plant-1, days to 95% maturity, plant height, pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1, number of seeds plant-1, branch number plant-1, 100 seed weight, adjusted grain yield .The combined analysis showed that Belessa-95 for days to flowering and some of other varieties for hundred seed weight showed a significant different at (p<0.01). Whereas, the parameters; plant height, grain yield per plot and adjusted were significantly different at (P < 0.05) (table 5). On the other hand, the rest of all other yield related traits did not show significant difference (P < 0.05) (table 5). Since no more varieties, except only PB12-8 performed over the all varieties including both checks regarding grain yield, it is recommended that there should be further evaluation of the all varieties at different environment with in different environment.
