With the objective of studying the effects of foliar application of uniconazole (S-3307D) on soybean plants (Glycine max (L.) Merrill cv IAC-17), at the beginning of the flowering stage, a field experiment was carried out using uniconazole at the following doses: 2.5; 5.0; 10.0 e 20.0 g a.i./ha. The experimental design consisted of randomized blocks with 5 treatments and 4 replicates; plot size was 10 m2, and the total experimental area 800 m2. The effects of S-3307D on the productivity of soybean plants were evaluated through the following observations, made at harvesting: weight in Kg of plants per 10 m2, number of plants per 10 m2, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, weight of 100 seeds (in grams), height of the plants (in cm) and number of branches. According to the results, it can be concluded that uniconazole at 10.0 g a.i./ha was efficient for increasing the yield of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill cv IAC-17).
