Many flowers are shed without forming pods. Inflorescence Slide 6: Soybean Floral Biology Inflorescence Older flowers (fertilized) Younger flowers Slide 7: Soybean Floral Biology Inflorescence The cultivated soybean bears flowers in the axil of a branch. Slide 8: Soybean Floral Biology The cultivated soybean bears flowers in the axil of a branch. Inflorescence Close-up Slide 9: The cultivated soybean bears flowers in the axil of a branch. Inflorescence Soybean Floral Biology Close-up Slide 10: Soybean Floral Biology Young flower buds Calyx Corolla Calyx Corolla Calyx Corolla Sepals Flowers of soybean are very small, about 4-6mm long. It is very difficult to emasculate them because of small size and delicate attachment on the stem Slide 11: Soybean Floral Biology Calyx Gamosepalous 5 sepals fused at the base Fertilized ovary (showing developing pod) Slide 12: Soybean Floral Biology The corolla consists of five petals, which enclose a pistil and ten stamens. Nine stamens develop in a tube around the pistil; the tenth stamen remains free. Standard (folded & unfolded) Wing Keel Sepals attached to standard Slide 13: Soybean Floral Biology Different views of reproductive parts Free stamen 9 fused stamens Calyx Calyx Calyx Calyx 9 fused stamens anthers Reproductive organs remain enclosed in keels Slide 14: Soybean Floral Biology Gynoecium removed from the flower GYNOECIUM (Before fertilization) 1.5 mm length Slide 15: Soybean Floral Biology Gynoecium removed from the flower GYNOECIUM (After fertilization) Stigma Style Ovary Slide 16: Soybean Floral Biology Variation for hairiness of pods Slide 17: Soybean Floral Biology Various stages of pod development After fertilization, still enclosed in keels (dried) Slide 18: Soybean Floral Biology Developing Grain CLOSE-UP Slide 19: Soybean Floral Biology Developing Grains (later stage) CLOSE-UP Slide 20: Soybean Floral Biology Fruiting Pattern on the Plant Slide 21: Soybean Floral Biology Fruiting on the Plant Close-up Slide 22: Soybean Floral Biology Hairy Pods Fruiting on the Plant Close-up Slide 23: Soybean Floral Biology Mature Pod You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
