Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The seed Fe-contents of M 10 mutant soybean lines selected for high protein or high oil content and favourable agronomic characteristics were investigated during 2003-2004 years. Their characteristics were revealed by basic statistics, gamma and normal probability distributions and related function analysis. For further plant breeding work, regarding the iron incorporating capacity, the soybean lines #8, #4, and #7 constitute promising genetic background.
