Background and Objective: The dry matter yield, fiber content, crude protein content and crude protein yield should depend on the cutting stage of each different soybean cultivars. This study aimed to clarify the effect of different growth stages on biomass weight and forage quality of different growth type soybean (Glycine max) in temperate low warm region, Japan. Materials and Methods: Determinate growth (DET) soybeans (Fukuyutaka, Norin 2), Indeterminate growth (IND) soybeans (Moshidou Gong 503, Williams 82) and an unknown growing type soybean (Kohamadaizu) were sowed in the beginning of June 2019 and harvested at three stages (R1, beginning of flowering stage, R2, full flowering stage, R5, beginning of seed development). The study was conducted as a randomized complete block design with three replications. Results: Fukuyutaka, Kohamadaizu and Norin 2 were reached flowering stage later than Moshidou Gong 503 and Williams 82. Longer time for growth stages of Fukuyutaka, Kohamadaizu and Norin 2 was resulting in high plant height, stem diameter, number of branches, number of leaves and dry matter weight. The amount of fiber content (ADF and NDF) was decreasing as stages developed for Fukuyutaka, Kohamadaizu and Norin 2. In another hand, fiber content of Moshidou Gong 503 and Williams 82 was increased as stages increasing. The CP weight was increased as advancing growth stages for all cultivars. Conclusion: Fukuyutaka and Kohamadaizu could be suitable in the utilization of soybean forage for feed livestock in the temperate low warm region in Japan.
