Reciprocal grafts were made among soybean genotypes varying in protein and oil percentage of the seed to determine the importance of root and stem in protein and oil accumulation. Results from two years indicate that the control sites for protein and oil synthesis are located in the aboveground portion of the plant. Differences in root genotype did not affect the protein and oil content of the seed.
