Soybean Genetics Newsletter


Soybean is generally cultivated in India as a sole or monoculture crop. However, its intercropping with maize is a common practice in some hilly areas of northern India. The practice aims at (1) insuring against total crop fail-ures under abnormal weather conditions, (2) increasing total productivity for unit land area, and (3) equitable and judicious utilization of land resources and farming inputs.
