Description

Maximum soybean production relies upon uniform and rapid stand establishment. Meeting these criteria requires an adequate supply of high quality seed. Providing the necessary seed supply has become the responsibility of the professional seedsmen. The ultimate quality of seed produced is defined by the genotype and the environment under which it is produced. Initially, soybean breeding programs emphasized yield and other agronomic traits with little concern for seed quality. Although to a large extent that is still true, there is a growing appreciation for the importance of seed quality.
