- ... Carbon isotope ratio (δ¹³C) has been used as a proxy for water use efficiency (WUE) in several crops. We compared δ¹³C of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] tissues sampled at bloom with δ¹³C of mature seed (MS). Twenty Maturity Group IV accessions with contrasting δ¹³C values were evaluated in three environments. Genotype and environment effects on δ¹³C were significant for the uppermost mature tri ...
