Abstract

Recurrent selection (RS) includes the systematic selection of desirable individuals from a population followed by recombination of the selected individuals to form a new population [ l]. Nuclear male-sterility with insect-mediated cross-pollination has been successfully used in RS schemes in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill]. However, selection to increase the seed-set on male-sterile plants per se has received minimal attention. Preferential pollination observed through seed-set suggested that selection on male-sterile plants for high seed-set can be attained [2, 3]. Thus, selected male-sterile, female-fertile lines could be suitable to produce larger amounts of hybrid soybean seed.
