Research notes: Study on the technique of crossing as well as on the genetic
behavior of quantitative characters of soybeans
During three years (1972 to 1974), studies were conducted on the technique of crossing as well as on the genetic behavior of quantitative characteristics of soybeans [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] by means of crossing varieties. In growth chambers , greenhouses and in the open field, 3,282 crosses were made. The rate of successful crosses was 17.9%, 14.5% and 6.2%, respectively, for the different years.
