Abstract

Littlejohns and Tanner (1976) have used soybean gennination at low temperature (l0°C) as a criterion for selecting for "cold tolerance". It is our contention that this coupled with a more definitive vigor test might prove to be more reliable in evaluating genotypic differences at low germination temperature. The most prominent soybean vigor tests have been classified into five major categories by McDonald (1976): (1) cold test, (2) accelerated aging test, (3) tetrazolium test, (4) respiration test, and (5) conductivity test.
