A method is described for producing soybean varieties and lines exhibiting palmitic acid contents of at least about 18.0% up to 30.0% or more. The novel soybean lines are obtained from a soybean seed designated A1937NMU-85 and its descendants, particular desirable progeny resulting from the cross of A1937NMU-85 with ElginEMS-421, and further with the cross of selected progeny with A89-259098.
