Research Project: PHASE II- INTROGRESSION OF NOVEL SCN RESISTANCE GENES INTO SOYBEAN GERMPLASM OF EARLY MATURITY GROUPS

Location: Crop Genetics Research Unit

Project Number: 6402-21220-011-07
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Mar 31, 2011

Objective:
Introgress novel SCN resistance genes into desirable agronomic backgrounds of early maturity groups using traditional breeding methods and marker assisted selection.

Approach:
Populations and lines will be developed using different sources of resistance identified by the Co-Principal Investigator. Crosses will be made between new sources or lines of Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) resistance and experimental elite ISU lines developed by the Principal Investigator. Selections include greenhouse bioassays and marker assisted breeding for SCN resistance and field evaluations for superior performance.
