Does Mechanical Damage on Soybean Induces the Production of Flavonoids?

Plants respond to grazing by producing chemical defense compounds such as protease inhibitors and secondary metabolites such as flavonoids, making them less palatable for feeding and negatively affecting the physiology of insects. The purpose of this study was to assess the phytochemical response of soybean cultivars Glycine max resistant (IAC-17, IAC-24) and susceptible (IAC-P1) to […]

Genetic Inheritance of Black Seed Coat in Soybean

The standard phenotype of R gene is black hilum on black seed. The genetic control of several soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) natural variants has not been studied. The genetic type T16 is the only occurrence with brown hilum on black seed coat. The aim of this chapter is to further a discussion the genetic […]
