2012 Annual Report
In 2011, the best high protein lines from the preliminary yield trials in 2010 were tested in replicated yield trials at two locations. The tests were designated LPPRO1 (18 entries from the population N6202 x G98-SF114) and LPPRO2 (15 entries from the N6202 x G98-SF114 population, 21 entries from the Young x N6202 population, and 3 entries from Benning x Danbaekong). Our best yielding high protein lines in MG V, VI and VII were comparable to the yield checks. The data combined from the 2010 and 2011 field seasons was used to select two lines, NLM09-77(MG V) and NLM09-52 (MGVII), to enter in the USDA Uniform Preliminary Yield Trials in 2012.
Our low phyate line 04-05N31 has been tested over 9 environments in North Carolina and had an average yield equivalent to 93% of the yield check NC-Roy. All of these results were presented at the soybean breeder’s workshop.
