MILTON P. DA COSTA LUIZ A.G. PEREIRA JOSÉ DE B. FRANÇA NETO
With lhe purpose of showing an alternative technique in differentiating
soybean cultivars, the seed coat peroxidase activity was measure in 47 cultivars, actually in use in Brazil. The cultivars were grouped into two classes: high peroxidase activity, also called as positive reaction, and low activity, characterized as negative reaction. From the 47 studied cultivars, 33 evidenced positive reaction, 13 negative, and one of them manifested both positive and negative reactions, problable due to varietal mixture.
