Objective Summary

This work seeks to develop a critical understanding of the ripening process in CSIRObred and elite Japanese cultivars of edamame soybean and in particular to understand how changes in seed size and the seed content of protein oil sugars (fructose glucose sucrose raffinose and stachyose) vitamins (A D and E) and isoflavones (genistein diadzein and glycitein) vary with ripening and maturation environment. This knowledge will be used to develop strategies to ensure consistent supplies of excellent quality edamame to highvalue markets in Australia initially and overseas.
