Abstract

Micropropagated plants of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr) CO3 had reduced plant height and leaf area than the conventional plants under the same growth conditions. However, the chlorophyll and protein content were found to be high in micropropagated plants when compared to conventional plants.
