Abstract

This experiment investigated the effect of foliar fertilization on yield components, yield and protein content to 75 soybean genotypes from four maturity groups. The experiment took place within the Soybean Breeding Laboratory at Research and Development Station for Agriculture Turda (RDSA Turda) over the course of two years (2020, 2021). The experimental design was a complete randomized block with three replications in which three variants of fertilization were analyzed, and the application of foliar fertilizers was carried out in different stages of soybean vegetation. In general, if we refer to the yield, it is observed that most of the genotypes that reacted favorably to the application of foliar fertilization are with the Ff1 variant, on the other hand, for the protein content, it seems that the Ff2 foliar fertilization variant causes an increase in protein in most of the genotypes that they had a favorable reaction to foliar fertilization. Regarding the component elements of yield, the application of foliar fertilization variants does not greatly contribute to increasing their number, being directly related to the genotype but also the interaction between environment x genotype.
