Research Project: DEVELOP HIGH YIELDING MG4-6 SOYBEAN LINES WITH HIGH OIL AND MODIFIED FATTY ACID PROFILES TO MEET THE DIVERSE MARKET DEMANDS

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-012-58
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

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

Objective:
Develop high yielding MG4-6 soybean lines with high oil and modified fatty acid profiles to meet the diverse market demands.

Approach:
Use conventional breeding methodologies to develop and test breeding lines and populations with high yield potential, high oil, high oleic acid, high stearic acid, low linolenic acid, or low palmitic acid; combine high oleic and high stearic; combine high oleic, low linolenic, and low palmitic traits.
