Abstract

Previous studies have reported a correlation between genome size and relative maturity among plant species. The objective of this study was to determine whether such a relationship exists in soybean. Twenty cultivars, representing maturity groups ranging from 000 to IX, were analyzed using flow cytometric procedures. A 15% difference in genome size was observed ranging from 'BSR 201' at 2.88 pg to 'Maple Presto' at 2.51 pg. A highly significant correlation (r = 0.55) was observed between maturity and the genome size of the 20 cultivars.
