‘Hill’ soybean seed obtained from 6 states varied in Mo content from 0.6 to 22.4 ppm. Seed from all sources except Texas contained less than 2.6 ppm and the progeny responded to Mo. Seed grown at Lubbock, Texas, contained 22.4 ppm Mo and progeny from this source did not respond to Mo.

High temperatures during the last 45 days of seed maturation of Hill soybeans were associated with poor seedling vigor in the progeny that persisted throughout the growing period and were reflected in bean yield.
