The objective of the study reported here was to test soybean genotypes having different growth habits and grown at different population densities for a differential response to an irrigation environment. Five varieties (Amsoy, PI 68.465, Beeson, Corsoy, and Calland) representing a range of genetic diversity were grown at four plant spacings within the row in three soil moisture regimes. Finding the combinations of plant type, population density, and water availability for high yield potential should provide information for use in soybean breeding programs for developing varieties that respond to good management under favorable environmental conditions. The study was conducted at the University of Nebraska Field Laboratory at Mead in the summer of 1970.
