Abstract

Abstract

Grafting of soybean [Glycine Max (L.) Merr.] from different maturity groups was studied to determine its feasability for simplifying crossing. When grafted on early flowering genotypes, scions of later flowering genotypes flowered 21 to 50 days after grafts were made. About 95% of the grafts were successful.

The grafting technique appears to be an excellent method of inducing earlier flowering on late genotypes to permit their use in a crossing program. It is also a means of producing seed on genotypes that otherwise flower too late for seed production i~ a particular geographical area.
