Résumé
Dehiscence of mature soybean Glycine max (L.) Merril pods is the major factor limiting the production of soybeans in arid climates. In this study 25 cultivars of soybeans were evaluated for dehiscence tolerance. Temperature and relative humidity were monitored at the experimental plot. Anatomical differences between pods from cultivars having different levels of dehiscence resistance were investigated. It was found that the configuration of the sclerenchyma strand at the dorsal suture was associated with the degree of pod dehiscence. Cultivars having great resistance to dehiscence had a "heart shaped" configuration while those having poor resistance to dehiscence exhibited a "flat shape" configuration of the sclerenchyma strand at the dorsal suture.
