Origin & Breeding History: '93Y20' (experimental designations 'PH08307' and 'XB34R07') was derived from the cross 93B86/92M91 made in 2000 in Puerto Rico. The early generations were advanced using the modified single-seed descent. The F2 progeny row was grown in a plant row yield trial in Chili in the winter of 2002/2003. Subsequently, it has undergone five seasons of extensive testing and purification in the United States. A commercial number was assigned based on yield, soybean cyst nematode resistance (race 3), phytophthora resistance, sudden death syndrome tolerance, brown stem rot tolerance, frogeye leaf spot tolerance, and resistance to Roundup branded herbicides. The purification block was grown in 2005 in Illinois. In 2005/2006, 0.50 acre increase was grown in Argentina. In the summer of 2006, 21 acres of parent seed stock were grown. In the summer of 2007, 611 acres of seed stock and production seed were grown.
Tests & Trials: Tests and Trials were conducted during the summer of 2009 in Ridgetown, Ontario. Plots consisted of 2 rows with a row length of 5m and a row spacing of 76 cm. There were 3 replicates. Results were supported by the official technical examination report 200800095 purchased from the Plant Variety Protection Office in the USA.
