1. Make crosses and develop initial populations segregating for tractable meal traits. 2. Use molecular markers to select desired genotypes. 3. Backcross selected genotypes and develop segregating populations. 4. Advance material identified with desired genotypes. 5. Evaluate meal trait phenotypes and agronimic characteristics of lines.
