Abstract:
'Prohio' soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] (Reg. No. CV-497, PI 643146) was developed jointly by the USDA-ARS and The Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster, OH, and was released as a high-yielding maturity group IV (relative maturity 4.1) non-Roundup Ready cultivar with relatively high seed protein. Prohio is a selection from a cross between HC94-81PR x 'A2506'. Both in the 2004 northern Regional Preliminary Test IV and in the 2005 northern Regional Uniform Test IV, Prohio had the greatest seed protein, while its oil content was slightly above the average for these tests. In South Region normal varieties evaluation of 2005 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials, Prohio had higher yields than all other public varieties in the test and had numerically highest seed protein among all lines in the trial. Prohio is a relatively high protein soybean cultivar with high yield potential, particularly in southern Ohio.
