Abstract

[Truncated] The winged bean, Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC., is a leguminous vegetable of minor importance. Until recently its cultivation was confined to the north-eastern fringes of the Indian Ocean between latitudes 25º North and 10º South. The studies described in this thesis were undertaken to test the hypothesis that sufficient genetic variability exists within the species to enable its development for irrigated agriculture in subtropical latitudes, represented by South-Western Australia (32º S).
