Project Number: 6402-21220-012-02-N
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 15, 2010
End Date: Sep 13, 2013
Facilitate cooperative research between the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Instituto Paraguayo De Tecnologia Agraria - IPTA identifying and developing rust resistant soybean lines.
Collaborator research units have been identified at national research institutions in both Paraguay and the U.S. who will conduct this research. These include the Centro Regional de Investigación Agrícola (CRIA) in the Instituto Paraguayo de Tecnolgia Agraria (IPTA) and the Crop Genetics Research Unit of the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The research is directed toward identifying new sources of resistance, development and phenotyping of segregating genetic populations and the development, phenotyping and testing of resistant breeding lines.
