Phenotypic correlations in soyabean and their importance in selection for yield

Ciencias de la Agricultura (24): 99-103

Phenotypic correlations in soyabean and their importance in selection for yield

Correlations among 9 traits were calculated from data recorded in 8 cultivars sown in May and 10 sown in December (only 1 cultivar was common to both groups). In the spring-sown material, 24 out of 36 possible correlations were significant or highly significant; in the other group, only 17. Correlations with yield indicated that yield could be raised by selecting for lateness, tallness and more pods per plant.
