Edamame, also called mao dou in China, is a large-seeded (seed dry wt. >250 mg/seed) green vegetable soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr., Fabaceae] cooked and served in pods as snack-like peanuts (Arachis hypogaea) (Shurtleff 2001). In Asia, where edamame is an important vegetable (Fig. 1), farmers harvest stems with fresh green pods before full maturity when pods are fully filled, nearly 80% matured, and just before turning yellow (Shanmugasundaram et al. 1991). This stage corresponds to the R6… Expand

Evaluation of Soybean Lines for Edamame (Glycine max (l.) Merrill) as a Potential Vegetable for Telangana State of India
TLDR
The genotype VEG 4 is nutritionally equal to regular soybean and superior to other vegetables consumed in the state, and may go as supplementary vegetable curry or food source for rural areas of Telangana for nutrition intervention programmes. Expand
An Evaluation of Breeding, Agronomic, and Processing Methodologies of Vegetable Soybean (Edamame) to Increase Domestic Production in the United States Market
Edamame is a food-grade soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) that is either harvested immature (R6 stage) or after plant maturity (R8 stage). At R6, the premium product will have crescentshaped largeExpand
Vegetable soybean, edamame: Research, production, utilization and analysis of its adoption in Sub-Saharan Africa
Food and nutritional insecurity constitute a main challenge in most Sub-Sahara African countries. Efforts to provide diets with sufficient nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins andExpand
Insight in edamame yield and quality parameters: a review
TLDR
The aim of this literature survey is to give a review on history and consumption facts of edamame, as well as on the yield and quality parameters of this fresh commodity. Expand
Insect Pests and Yield Potential of Vegetable Soybean (Edamame) Produced in Georgia
TLDR
The fresh green seed yields produced during this study demonstrate that this emerging alternative crop has the potential for economic success in the southern region, assuming that the arthropod pests are effectively managed to maintain acceptable edamame quality and yield. Expand
Adaptation and stability of vegetable soybean genotypes in Uganda
TLDR
This study assesses the adaptation and stability of vegetable soybean genotypes in different agro-ecological zones of Uganda to enable selection of genotypes and recommends that G10427 be used as a test genotype and for improvement to produce a variety with good attributes, especially large seed, high yield and adaptable to Uganda. Expand
Quality of Acid-Preserved Edamame Soybean at Immature and Mature Stages
Edamame is a food-grade soybean that is harvested at the green-immature stage (R6) and sold fresh or frozen for consumption after steaming or boiling. Limited studies have been conducted onExpand
Yield loss estimation and efficacy of biopesticides on the management of Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) in vegetable soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill]
TLDR
A study was taken up to estimate the loss caused by the pod borer and to evaluate the bio pesticides against it, and among the biopesticides it was NSKE (4%) performed better followed by HaNPV, however, other bio pesticides viz. Expand
Effect of Planting Date and Cultivar Maturity in Edamame Quality and Harvest Window
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to assess the impact of cultivar, planting date, and harvest date on edamame color, pod weight, and a newly minted Edamame Harvest Quality Index combining both aforementioned factors, and to predict edamAME harvest quality based on phenological stages, thermal units, and planting dates. Expand
EFFECTS of DIFFERENT IRRIGATION LEVELS on POPULATION DENSITIES of Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess, 1880) on TWO VEGETABLE SOYBEAN (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) CULTIVARS
TLDR
Based on the findings, varietal characteristics should be considered and select less sensitive cultivars to L. trifolii and water stress especially in semi-arid and arid areas for successfully growing soybean. Expand

Yield, protein, and oil quality of soybean genotypes selected for tofu production
TLDR
There is a need for evaluation of soybean germplasm for agronomic traits that contribute to seed yield and biochemical characteristics including fatty acid profiles that enhance soyfood quality before initiating development of suitable cultivars for tofu. Expand
Phytates in legumes and cereals.
TLDR
This chapter discusses that the knowledge of phytic acid had its beginning in the discovery by Hartig, who isolated small particles or grains from the seeds of various plants, and the correlation of phytate with the cooking quality of peas was first suggested by Mattson. Expand
Green soybeans as a vegetable: Comparing green soybeans with green peas and lima beans; and maximized harvest time determinations using mathematical modeling
Quality properties of 6 varieties of green soybeans [Glycine mnx (L.) Merr.] were measured with respect to time of seed and pod development expressed in "C-days. Properties studied included texture,Expand
Developments in plant breeding for improved nutritional quality of soya beans II. Anti-nutritional factors
TLDR
The role of plant breeding in achieving nutritive value and protection against unwanted proteolysis in plant tissues is considered, as well as processing which may alter protein structure and therefore functionality of proteinaceous anti-nutritional factors present. Expand
Genetic Improvement of Nutritional and Food Processing Quality in Soybean
TLDR
Through breeding trials to manipulate the variant alleles, new soybean varieties and lines have been developed that should display improved quality and food processing characteristics. Expand
Chemical composition of kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) seed oil
Abstract Seeds from nine kenaf genotypes (Cubano, Everglades 41, Everglades 71, GR2563, Guatemala 48, Indian, 178-18RS-10, Tainung #1, and Tainung #2) were evaluated for oil, fatty acid,Expand
Flavor improvement of soybean preparations by genetic removal of lipoxygenase-2
Lipoxygenase-mediated oxidation of fatty acids has long been implicated in the production of off-flavors in soybean products. This assumption was tested by use of preparations from soybean linesExpand
Accumulation of phytate in vegetable-type soybean genotypes harvested at four developmental stages
TLDR
It is illustrated that determining the phytate content of genotypes at the R6 growth stage would be a good predictor of the overall genotypic performance, and selecting genotypes for lower phytates would be effective. Expand
Stage of Development Descriptions for Soybeans, Glycine Max (L.) Merrill
TLDR
The stage descriptions should enhance soybean research by standardizing descriptions of soybean plant development and will be used by the soybean hail insurance industry for stage determination in adjustment of losses. Expand
