Inheritance and linkage relation of nine morphological characters in four intervarietal
crosses of soybean suggest growth habit, hypocotyl colour, petal colour, pubescence type,
pubescence colour, and pod colour to be governed by a single pair of genes. However, seed
coat colour is controlled by either one or two genes and hilum colour by one, two or three
pairs of genes. Out of 46 joint segregations, significantlinkages have been observed in nine
cases. Crossover percentage was in the range of 15.2 to 49.4 for different alleles.
Keywords: Inheritance, linkage, morphological characters, Glycine max.
