Interpretive Summary: Prohio is a soybean cultivar that was developed jointly by the USDA-Agricultural Research Service and The Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster, OH and was released as a high-protein high-yielding maturity group IV (relative maturity 4.1) non Roundup Ready® cultivar in December 2006. In irrigated fields in Wooster Ohio, it out yielded a number of high yielding Ohio cultivars, including Kottman, Stressland, and General. In 2005 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials, Prohio had higher yields than all other public varieties in the test and had the highest seed protein among all lines. 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. Prohio is a high-protein soybean cultivar with high-yield potential, particularly under high-yielding environments in Ohio. In the face of external competition from other soybean exporting counties (e.g., Brazil and Argentina) and internal competition from other commodity crops, the U.S. soybean needs not only increased yield but also improved compositional quality. High-protein soybean cultivars such as Prohio should be very useful to the U.S. soybean industry.

Technical Abstract: ‘Prohio’ soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.]) was developed jointly by the USDA-Agricultural Research Service and The Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster, OH and was released as a high-protein high-yielding maturity group IV (relative maturity 4.1) non Roundup Ready® cultivar in December 2006. Prohio is a selection from a cross between HC94-81PR x ‘A2506’. In irrigated fields in Wooster Ohio, it out yielded a number of high yielding Ohio cultivars, including Kottman, Stressland, and General. In 2005 Ohio Soybean Performance Trials, Prohio had higher yields than all other public varieties in the test and had the highest seed protein among all lines. 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. Prohio is a high-protein soybean cultivar with high-yield potential, particularly under high-yielding environments in Ohio.
