Author(s): Ambika Rajendran, Lal SK, Jain SK and Dhandapani Raju
Abstract: Waterlogging is a common abiotic stress in kharif season (monsoon) dependent crops like soybean, the objective of this study was to evaluate the possibility of finding a morphological trait as selection criteria of soybean genotypes under waterlogging anaerobic stress. The experiment was carried out in the stage of germination. Percent germination was measured during water logging stress and stress recovery. Our results indicated the presence of genetic variability for germination. Percent germination associated with pre-germination under stress conditions can be used as selection criteria for waterlogging-tolerant soybean in breeding programs.
