Abstract
With very few exceptions, high yields usually result from uniform crop stands which are established by sowing seeds of high vigour. Much research has been done on various aspects that influence stand establishment, yield and yield components in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill]. Seed size and its effect on seed vigour in soybean have been researched extensively without any definite conclusion. High seed vigour in soybean has been reported to be associated with large seeds in some studies and, in others, it has been associated with medium and small seeds, and, still in others, there has been no correlation at all between seed size and vigour.
