We search for hadronic decays of a light Higgs boson (A^0) produced in radiative decays of an Υ(2S) or Υ(3S) meson, Υ→γA^0. The data have been recorded by the BABAR experiment at the Υ(3S) and Υ(2S) center-of-mass energies and include (121.3±1.2)×10^6 Υ(3S) and (98.3±0.9)×10^6 Υ(2S) mesons. No significant signal is observed. We set 90% confidence level upper limits on the product branching fractions B(Υ(nS)→γA^0)B(A^0→hadrons) (n=2 or 3) that range from 1×10^(-6) for an A^0 mass of 0.3 GeV/c^2 to 8×10^(-5) at 7 GeV/c^2.
