Research Project: A Calculated Approach to Breeding Low Phytate Soybean for Improved Germination and Emergence

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-068-13
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2014

Objective:
We propose to develop, characterize, and advance breeding populations created to improve germination and emergence in low phytate soybeans, using two sources of the low phytate trait, CX1834-derived lines and Mips1 mutants.

Approach:
We will develop breeding methodologies for LP (low phytate) germplasm in tandem with strategic handling of LP breeding populations for selection of improved G&E. Genetic improvement of G&E in LP germplasm should be possible through development of effective breeding methodologies, germplasm characterization, and selection of appropriate parents.
