Performance of recent vegetable soybean, introduced from AVRDC, in northern Vietnam
Six promising vegetable soybean cultivars, 'AGS333', 'AGS356', 'AGS358', 'AGS380', 'AGS398' and 'AGS399', were trialed for growth ability, yield, and yield components during 2007-2009 fall-winter and spring seasons in Gia Lam, Hanoi, Vietnam. Growth ability of the cultivars in spring trials was much better than that in the fall-winter trials. 'AGS398' was the most promising cultivar in both trials. It was highly resistant to pests and diseases under open-field conditions, and produced the highest pod number per plant and highest 100-seed weight of the six observed cultivars. In addition, 'AGS398' had shorter growth duration, more uniform pods, compact plant shape, and better seed quality.
