2012 Annual Report
This new research project is a continuation of the research project 6645-21220-012-41S and has been active only since April 1, 2012. Forty high oleic acid (>70%oleic) and forty low oleic acid (<23% oleic) backcross 2 (BC2) lines from six different genetic backgrounds that are 87.5% adapted pedigree are planted and being evaluated in six environments at Stoneville, MS, Portageville, MO and Columbia, Missouri to access the effects of the FAD2-1A and FAD2-1B genes on yield, fatty acid profiles and protein and oil. High yield checks are also included in these tests.
