Soybean Genetics Newsletter


Two hundred soybean plant introductions and cultivars in each of maturity groups III, IV, and V were evaluated during the 1983 planting season. Data collection consisted of days from emergence to maturity, final plant height, and oven-dried weights of stems and pod walls and seeds from four plants removed from each plot. Seed yield was determined by clipping off the end 30 cm of each plot and harvesting the remaining 1 m of the three rows. This report is limited to data on seed yield efficiency (SYE) values only.
