Chemical Composition of Soybean cv. Williams-82 Seeds in Pot Culture Experiments

Abstract:
A pot culture experiment on soybean cv. Williams-82 was conducted in clay loam soil with six different level (T2 to T7) of added N fertilizer @ 23, 25, 50, 75, 100 and 125 kg ha‾1 plus a constant dose of P2O5 + K2O fertilizer @ 60 + 30 kg ha‾1, respectively Whereas T1 with zero level of added NPK was kept control. A constant dose of FYM was also mixed with soil (3:1). These six fertilizer treatments were applied to both non-inoculated and inoculated pot culture crops. Results showed that fertilizer treatments significantly increased the protein and oil content of seeds. A maximum oil content (18.42%) was recorded in T6 dose of fertilizer. While soluble sugars are significantly increased only in higher doses of fertilizer (T4 to T7), Whereas the starch content and free amino acids showed significant decrease. As far inoculation effects are concerned, they generally did not significantly influenced the protein content and soluble sugars, but oil content (19.09%) and free amino acids respond positively. While reverse was true for starch contents. The correlation coefficient (r) studies revealed that protein content exhibited highly significant positive association with oil (0.716) without any concomitant loss in grain yield. Which could be used a suitable selection criterion for predicting the quality and quantity of grain yield in soybean cv. Williams-82.
