Sixty germplasm lines were raised in replicated trial at 700 m above m.s.l. and 1300 m above m.s.l. in the western zone of sub-Himalayan region to understand the genetic and altitude effects on seed protein in soybean. A larger influence of genetic effect was recorded; however, an appreciable influence of altitude, and genotype x altitude interaction effects were also noticed. Expression of protein content was maximum at the lower altitude, as compared with higher altitude.
