The crop Soybean has a lot of impending possibility in Bangladesh but in present the production is not sufficient due to use of low yield potential varieties, poor agronomic management practices, climatic conditions, pest concerns and low fertility requirements. The study was aimed to find out the best yielding varieties suited for Noakhali region among the available varieties. A field experiment was conducted at Halim bazar, Suborno Char, Noakhali, a coastal district of southern Bangladesh,

The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with ten replications. There were significant differences among the different treatment combination in terms of growth and yield contributing characters. The highest seed yield was obtained from BARI Soybean-5 (1.75t/ha) and lowest seed yield was obtained from the local variety named Shohag (1.41t/ha). The overall results indicated that selection of modern variety BARI Soybean-5 produced the maximum seed yield of soybean in the char areas under Young Meghna Estuarine Floodplain soil (AEZ-16) of Bangladesh
