Research Project: ENHANCING BIOLOGICAL NITROGEN FIXATION (BNF) OF LEGUMINOUS CROPS GROWN ON DEGRADED SOILS IN UGANDA, RWANDA, AND TANZANIA Project Number: 5354-21220-016-09
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
Characterize inheritance of biological nitrogen fixation in dry beans and develop germplasm with improved biological nitrogen fixation.

Approach:
Optimze biological nitrogen fixation in dry beans through genetics and plant breeding. Identify lines with high BNF and cross with lines with low BNF to devlop breeding populations. Evaluate breeding and mapping populations for BNF response and populate with markers for QTL analysis.Documents Reimbursable with IA State. Log 41946.
