Soybean Flower

October 02, 2008 Print Friendly and PDF

Soybean flower colors are usually white or purple. One plant will have flowers of the same color (i.e., all white or all purple).

Flower color is controlled by a single gene. Soybean is a self-pollinated plant and does not require pollinators such as bees. As a result, flower color has no effect on yield.

For more information on this and other topics related to soybean production, contact your state extension specialist or your local extension educator/agent.
