Main Objectives

The main objective of this UV-B study was to examine the qualitative effects of UV radiation on the early development of soybean (Glycine max), using two varieties Williams and Forrest. The goals of the study were to: (1) evaluate the initial responses to low dose UV radiation in newly emerging plants up to 28 days post-germination; (2) evaluate effects of UV radiation on the seed production and viability of seed by examining the viability of the seeds produced from plants receiving a low dose UV radiation at germination (Day 3 after planting); and (3) examine the effects of UV-B on some of the products of the phenylpropanoid pathway.
