Soybean Genetics Newsletter


An attempt was made to investigate the inheritance, variation, and segregation of some agronomic characters of interspecific crosses in soybean. Effect of backcrossing with cultivated soybeans as recurrent parents was analyzed in order to find out reasonable and effective methods for utilizing wild and semi-wild soybean germplasms. The parents used in this study were Glycine max (L.) Merr. (Dongnong-33, Dongnong 4), G. gracilis Skvortz. (Long 79-4004, Long 79-3407-1) and G. soja Sieb. and Zucc. (Ji-50192).
