The Inheritance of Inflorescence Type, Peduncle Length, Flowers Per Node, and Percent Flower Shedding in Soybeans1

  1. P. H. van Schaik and
  2. A. H. Probst2



One factor pair conditioned type of inflorescence. The gene for pedunculate was dominant over sub-sessile inflorescence. The symbols Se and se have been assigned to this factor pair.

Inflorescence type segregated independently of flower color and growth type but was linked with maturity and height.

Peduncle length, flower number per node, and percent flower shedding were inherited quantitatively with dominance and complementary gene effects toward long peduncles, high flower number, and high shedding.
