Soybean suicide
Depressed because your green thumb has turned pale? Re-
lax. Your plants could be killing themselves without any help
from you.--
Some plants have suidical impulses that no amount of lov-
ing, care will remove, according to Dr. L. Nooden, Associate==
Botany Prof.
Suicidal plants are widespread among some annuals and
crop plants. Near the end of the growing season, the plant
flowers and develops seeds. The seed produces a death signal ;f
and kills the plant before natural forces like weather can causeI
death.If".
Nooden and Sue Schreyer, a graduate student in Botany are
working to identify and block the death signal. If this impulse
could be stopped, the crop yields of plants like soybeans 'could-
be increased by longer growing periods, Nooden said. He and
Schreyer are studying soybean suicides through a grant-from
the U. S. Department of Agrictulture.
This self-destructiveness is not a conscious decision of the
plant to die, Nooden. So punish yourself no longer for driving
your plant to it's doom. Some plants are just programmed to
self-destruct.
