One hundred vegetable-type soybean, Glycine max [L.] Merrill, accessions from maturity groups III through VIII plus 70 grain-type cultivars and plant introductions (PIs) resistant and susceptible to Mexican bean beetle, Epilachna varivestis Mulsant, were evaluated in a randomized block design with three replications for resistance to Mexican bean beetle foliar feeding in a 3-yr field study. Vegetable-type soybean cultivars ranged from moderate susceptibility ('Camp'), similar to many grain-type cultivars, to highly susceptible ('Sato', 'Hahto'). PIs with desirable vegetable-type traits and good to average resistance to Mexican bean beetle (PIs 417061, 417288, and 417310 and FC 31732) were identified, as was highly susceptible germplasm (PI 416771).
