Origin & Breeding History: '90Y30' is the result of a cross between 91M10 x 90M20 that occurred in 2002 in Minnesota. Bulk and modified single seed descent methods were used in developing the variety. It was evaluated in yield test nurseries from 2004 to 2009. Contra season nurseries were used to advance the development of the variety. Selection criteria included yield and maturity.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted during the 2010 growing season in Woodstock, Ontario. Plots consisted of 2 rows with a row length of 3.8 meters and a row spacing of 76.2 cm. There were 3 replications. Tests and trials were supported by the purchased test report number 201000103 from the Plant Variety Protection Office, Beltsville, Maryland, USA.
