Research Project: IMPROVE OIL QUANTITY AND FATTY ACID PROFILES OF THE HIGH-PROTEIN HIGH-YIELDING MG II-III SOYBEAN LINES ADAPTED TO THE NORTHEASTERN USA

Location: Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research Unit

Project Number: 5082-21000-016-03
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Mar 31, 2014

Objective:
Breed for high oleic acid, low linolenic acid and high oil soybean breeding lines/cultivars in maturity group II-IV.

Approach:
The objective will be achieved crossing high oleic acid lines from Missouri with maturity group II-IV soybean cultivars and selecting high oleic acid progeny lines using marker assisted selection with melting curve assay on Lightcycler 480.
