Xantha form mutants of Glycine Max (L.) Merril were examined for their chlorophyll content during early seedling development. Trifoliate leaves of 8-24 day old dark green, light green and yellow plants differed significantly in chlorophyll content. Total chlorophyll content in all three phenotypes increased up to approximately the 16th day followed by a slight drop from the 16th to the 24th day. The relative proportion of chlorophyll a to chlorophyll b differed among the three leaf types.
