Research Project: Development of High Yielding Soybean Cultivars and Germplasm with Higher Seed Protein Content and Improved Amino Acid Composition

Location: Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research Unit

Project Number: 5082-21000-016-12
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Apr 01, 2014
End Date: Sep 30, 2015

Objective:
Develop soybean germplasm with high protein and characterise genes for high-protein.

Approach:
High-yielding soybean lines from Ohio will be crossed to sources of high-protein contents from other states and breeding lines with high-protein will be selected to develop high-protein soybean germplasm and major genes for high-protein will be characterized.
