‘NC-Miller’ (Reg. No. CV-505, PI 665018) soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] was developed and released by the USDA-ARS in 2011 as a high-yielding and high-oil late maturity group V, conventional cultivar. NC-Miller is an F5 selection from the cross of cultivars ‘Santee’ and ‘Holladay’. In the North Carolina Official Variety Trials for late maturity group V (2007–2010), yields of NC-Miller were either greater than or equivalent to those of other conventional cultivars. Also, in yield trials conducted by the USDA-ARS soybean breeding program in North Carolina (2003–2008) and in the USDA Preliminary and Regional Tests (2008–2010), the mean yield of NC-Miller was comparable with that of the check cultivars. NC-Miller has higher seed-oil concentration (216 g kg−1) in comparison with the check cultivars ‘AG 5606’ (205 g kg−1), ‘5601T’ (204 g kg−1) and ‘Osage’(197 g kg−1). It has a determinate growth habit, purple flowers, gray pubescence, and tan pod walls. It is resistant to Soybean mosaic virus and moderately resistant to sudden death syndrome [caused by Fusarium solani (Mart.) Sacc. f. sp. glycines]. NC-Miller's attributes of high seed oil concentration and good yield provide an added value to soybean crushers.
