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