Soybean maturity will be modeled with molecular genetic data for the three E gene loci and corresponding phenotypic data. Soybean lines will be developed and evaluated for yield utilizing the molecular markers targeting maturity groups I, III, and V. Soybean lines with maturity groups I, III, and V will also be developed that contain the high oleic acid seed oil or low phytate seed meal traits by utilizing a straight cross molecular marker-assisted approach to converge appropriate maturity and seed composition traits.
