Abstract

While it has been demonstrated that the fatty acid composition of soybean oil can be changed by recurrent selection (Wilson et al., 1981), there is little information about the genetic control of oil biosynthesis in soybean seeds. In some species, such as rape (Downey and Harvey, 1963), safflower (Yermanos et al., 1967), and flax (Yermanos and Knowles, 1962), the male parent has a significant effect on the fatty acid composition of oil from F1 hybrid seeds. In corn (Jellum, 1966) and soybeans (Brim et al., 1968), the male parent has almost no effect on oil composition of F1 hybrid seeds.
