Effect of genetic background on detection of quantitative trait locus (QTL) governing salinity tolerance (ST) was studied using two sets of reciprocal introgression lines (ILs) derived from a cross between a moderately salinity tolerant japonica variety, Xiushui09 from China, and a drought tolerant but salinity susceptible indica breeding line,(More)
Reproductive period (RP) is an important trait of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] It is closely related to yield, quality and tolerances to environmental stresses. To investigate the inheritance and photoperiod response of RP in soybean, the F1, F2, and F2:3 populations derived from nine crosses were developed. The inheritance of RP was analyzed through(More)
The total growth duration (TGD), the days from emergence to maturation of the soybean, can be divided into vegetative period (VP) and reproductive period (RP). The ratio of RP to VP (R/V) is an index to investigate evolutionary trends and understand the relationships between different growth periods. To increase our understanding of growth period traits(More)
