1. Young Biloxi soy beans were grown for about a month on a long photoperiod. These long-day plants were divided into eight series, each receiving a different short photoperiod. Plants from each series were returned to natural day after 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10 days. 2. Stimulation of two short photoperiods was sufficient to alter the course of development of the growing points in such a way that differentiation of flower primordia resulted. 3. The length of the photoperiod influenced the… Expand
Effect of Photoperiod on Development and Metabolism of the Biloxi Soy Bean
It was found that the longest photoperiod on which fruit formation occurred was 13 hours and the shortest one on which no flowering took place was 16 hours, and the amount of soluble carbohydrates in the transfer groups seems to be correlated with the length ofPhotoperiod. Expand
Photoperiodic Pereception in Biloxi Soy Beans
Control of initiation is exercised only through application of photoperiods of proper length to the leaves, and whether the responses secured in these experiments are due to a flower forming hormone or to other causes remains to be determined. Expand
Floral inhibition in relation to photoperiodism in Biloxi soybean.
Differential flowering due to varying lengths of photoperiod during the second 24 hour period provides information concerning the nature of floral inhibition in Biloxi soybean. Expand
Effectiveness of Photoperiodic Treatments of Plants of Different Age
In the present investigation the Biloxi soy bean, which is very responsive photoperiodically, was used and critical morphological examinations were made of the fresh material before and after short day treatments. Expand
A test of the possibilities of photoperiodic induction of blooming in triumph potatoes and the morphological consequences
An attempt was made to determine the possibilities along this line of using a long photoperiod during the early life of the potato plant to induce it to bloom in the winter of 1938, and was very successful in producing potato flowers and berries. Expand
Floral Initiation in Biloxi Soybeans as Influenced by Photosynthetic Activity During the Induction Period
Increased concentration of CO2 in natural air resulted in increased floral initiation in Biloxi soybean, and plants that received 2 hours or more of high-intensity light during the photoperiod produced increasingly larger numbers of flower primordia as the duration of high intensity light increased.

Photoperiod Sensitivity during Flower Development of Opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum L.)
Abstract Photoperiod is a major factor in flower development of the opium poppy ( Papaver somniferum L. ‘album DC’) which is a long-day plant. Predicting time to flower in field-grown opium poppyExpand
Photoperiodic Flowering Response of Biloxi Soybean in 72-Hour Cycles.
Since Nanda and Hamner have demonstrated a periodic variation in floral response as a function of cycle durations, it was difficult to predict what results might be obtained with various photoperiods given in long cycles of standard duration. Expand
On the varietal difference of the effect ofshort day-length upon the flower initiation, .its development and the seed ripeningperiod of soy-bean.
Experiments were carried out in 1957, to clear up the varietal difference of the effect of short daylength upon the flower initiation and its development, using 7 varieties of soy-bean including theExpand
Effect of Length of Induction Period on Floral Development of Xanthium pennsylvanicum
Histological examinations were made of the developing carpellate and staminate inflorescences of Xanthium pennsylvanicum, finding that increasing the number of induction treatments seemed to stimulate the production of carpellates more than of staminated inflorescence. Expand
