Research Project: DEVELOPMENT OF MG00, 0 AND I SOYBEAN GERMPLASM HIGH OLEIC ACID, LOW SATURATED FATTY ACIDS AND LOW LINOLENIC ACID WITH GOOD AGRONOMIC QUALITY

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-012-56
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2013

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
