Abstract

Abstract

The effects of 24 herbicides on soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] seed yield, weight, protein, nonprotein nitrogen, oil, and fatty acid composition were investigated for several cultivars in 1969, 1970, and 1971 at Urbana, Illinois. Significant, but very small alterations in the measured parameters were noted for some herbicides, applied alone or in combination. The greatest difference observed was a reduction in seed yield due to injury from excessive herbicide rates or competition from weeds not controlled. The practical importance of the apparent alterations in seed composition caused by the herbicides is considered inconsequential.
