Soybean Genetics Newsletter


During the 1976 rainy season the multifoliolate plants (with four to five leaflets) were observed in an adapted and widely cultivated soybean cultivar, 'S.J. 2', grown at the Northeast Agricultural Center. A total of 3774 plants from every 10 rows was counted for this multifoliolate character. Plants with four or five leaflets were classed as multi-leafleted (Table 1).
