Research Project: DEVELOPMENT OF EARLY MATURING GEM LINES WITH VALUE-ADDED TRAITS

Location: Plant Introduction Research

Project Number: 3625-21000-050-09-S
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 9, 2007
End Date: May 31, 2012

Objective:
Develop early maturity (RM<95 days) germplasm with value added-traits (VAT) utilizing exotic sources originating from the GEM Project. VAT's include composition for protein, oil, and starch.

Approach:
Top crosses will be evaluated for performance in early maturity environments of North Dakota. Lines will be selected based on a benchmark for yield and moisture of 101%, and 95-100% respectively. The selected lines will be studied for VAT's. Three stiff-stalk, and six non-stiff stalk populations will be advanced and further selected in the nursery for future development.
