Registration of ‘TN11-5102’ Soybean Cultivar with High Yield and High Protein Meal
Pantalone, V. R., and C. Smallwood.  2018.  Journal of Plant Registrations, 12:1-5.

The conventional (non-GM) soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] line TN11-5102 (Reg. No. CV-526, PI 686908) was released by University of Tennessee Agricultural Research in 2017 as a cultivar, based on high seed yield potential in Tennessee and the southern region. The objective of its development was to provide a new cultivar combining high seed yield with high protein soymeal. The rationale is that U.S. soybeans bred for high yield typically lead to lower protein concentration. Soybean cultivar TN11-5102 was developed from one of six hundred fifty-three F21 single plant selections within cultivar ‘5601T’. Progeny rows were selected based on adapted maturity, lodging resistance, disease resistance, and pod density. Selections were carried forward for yield testing. Soybean cultivar TN11-5102 is resistant to southern root knot nematode, [Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid and White) Chitwood] and is resistant to stem canker, Diaporthe phaseolorum (Cooke & Ellis) Sacc. var. caulivora K.L. Athow & R.M. Caldwell. TN11-5102 has white flowers, gray pubescence, tan podwall, and a determinate growth habit. The plants show good resistance to lodging. Averaged over three years (2014-2016) of the USDA Southern Uniform Testing Program, TN11-5102 had 421 g kg-1 protein on a dry weight basis and 216 g kg-1 oil on a dry weight basis, and is capable of producing 490 g kg-1 protein in the soymeal It will serve as an excellent parent line in breeding for high yield and improved protein.
