Abstract

Seed set on male-sterile plants is of general interest to geneticists. For the quantitative geneticist, high seed set allows greater flexibility in the design of basic genetic experiments, including selection and variance com-ponent estimation studies. For the plant breeder, high seed set raises a hope of hybrid soybean production. Hybrid production, to be economical, requires adequate seed yield on male-sterile plants grown in the field.
