DEVELOPMENT OF MG00, 0 AND I SOYBEAN GERMPLASM HIGH OLEIC ACID, LOW SATURATED FATTY ACIDS AND LOW LINOLENIC ACID WITH GOOD AGRONOMIC QUALITY
Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research
Project Number: 6645-21220-012-56
General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2013
Lines with low linolenic acid (<3%), and/or less than 7% saturated fatty acids (16:0 + 18:0) will be developed for maturity groups 00, 0 and I and released if competitive in performance.
Utilize classical methods of plant breeding and molecular tools available to accelerate the development of breeding material with higher oil concentration and improved fatty acid profiles.
