It was in the early 1980s, when soybean production had reached 70 million acres, that Carter first began studying the treasure trove of Asian soybean plant
introductions housed in Urbana, looking for rare types that express the slow-wilting form of drought tolerance.
The no-nitrogen atmosphere forced the bacteria in those areas to cheat on their symbiotic deal with the soybean plant
. The plants seemed to retaliate for this outrage by reducing the supply of oxygen in those sections.
(5) Oviposition on cotton balls tied to a living, potted soybean plant
(BRS 267 cultivar) at the full pod-filling stage, or on the potted plant itself.
Along with biologist Carol Carter-Wientjes, he found just the right fungus to mimic the kind of disease threat needed to put soybean plant
cells on high alert--and produce impressive amounts of glyceollins.
Previous research done on soybean plant
density has shown that for a given row width, there is a wide range of seeding rates that result in statistically similar yields (Wiggans, 1939; Probst, 1945; Cooper, 1971; Wilcox, 1974; Ablett et al., 1984; Elmore, 1998; Bowen and Schapaugh, 1989; Devlin et al., 1995).
It's hard to argue that a dead and brown conventional soybean plant
can offer more nutritious forage than a green and growing forage soybean that only dies after a few very hard frosts.
Apart from above factors, the higher efficiency of conversion in the exclusive regime with soy leaves may also get affected by the new soybean plant
tissues as they seem to be more attractive to the pests, mainly due to their more palatability and higher nutritional value (FITT, 1989), thereby presenting higher quality.

Soybeans have the ability to "flex," or adjust growth and development, in response to seeding rates and environmental conditions; variation in plant development is often expressed in the amount of branches and pods the soybean plant
