Due to high protein content (40-42 %) of soybean it is known as “poor man’s meat”. The average productivity of soybean in the country is about 1008 kg/ha, which is, much below than the average productivity of the world, 2148 kg/ha. Some of the major constraints in soybean production are the lack of suitable location specific cultivars, poor seed viability and non-availability of drought resistant varieties, poor storage life of soya oil, beany flavor and high linolenic acid content. From the present investigation, it is concluded that amongst the different soybean genotypes, G9 (EC-34332) produced the highest grain yield (2754 kg/ha). In the high yielding genotypes viz., G9 (EC-34332), G11 (PLSO-76), G10 (EC-39034), mean number of pods per plant, mean number of grains per pod, 1000 grain weight and mean harvest index (HI) were observed to be the major yield contributing characters. Negative correlation of mean protein content with seed yield was observed as the low yielding genotype G7 (DS-141) was found superior in respect of protein content.
