Project Number: 6645-21220-068-27
Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Mar 31, 2014
Conventional breeding procedures will be predominantly employed. Cross new high oil, high oleic, low linolenic, and low saturates germplasms (e.g. IA1022 [SCN], FAD2 lines, SD05-767, M03-275035) to adapted high-yielding varieties/lines, and advance the generations by single seed descent. Individual plant selection will be used to eliminate inferior plants and/or for resistance in case pest/disease occurs. Near-infrared, MNR and/or gas chromatography methods will be used to analyze oil and fatty acids. Marker-assisted backcrossing will be used for high-oleic and/or low linolenic acids. Simple sequence repeat markers will be predominantly used for quantitative trait loci mapping with a recombinant inbred line population.
