The response of soybeans to seed treatment with gibberellin was studied at eight locations from Winnipeg, Man., to Coahoma, Miss. Stands and yields were reduced by applications of either 2 or 8 g. potassium gibberellate per bushel of seed. While treated plants were taller in the seedling stage, at maturity the controls were more than 5 inches taller than treated plants in most cases, Maturity and oil and protein contents of the seed were not affected consistently by gibberellin treatment.
