In the last four years, the continuous development of the soybean acreage in Europe, mostly in Central and Eastern Europe, is challenging farmers to apply the adequate growing technology in order to maximize the yields and increase the quality of soybeans. At the same time, this situation is creating a new momentum for breeders for new and/or improved soybean genotypes. The yield performance of various soybean genotypes will allow breeders and agriculture experts to recommend farmers the right variety for a specific soybean cropping area and the farmers to select the right variety for obtaining the best yields under current soybean growing technology. The field experiments were carried-out in 2015 and 2016 in different climate conditions, 2015 being considered less favorable for growing soybeans, while 2016 was favorable to very favorable for this crop. A wide assortment of soybean varieties from different maturity groups created by public and private breeders for allover Europe had been tested in two experimental years under different and regional specific conditions in five locations in Romania (Central, East, South-East and South-West) and one location in Bulgaria (North).
