Research Project: A Calculated Approach to Breeding Low Phytate Soybean for Improved Germination and Emergence

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-068-13-S
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2014

We propose to develop, characterize, and advance breeding populations created to improve germination and emergence in low phytate soybeans, using two sources of the low phytate trait, CX1834-derived lines and Mips1 mutants.

We will develop breeding methodologies for LP (low phytate) germplasm in tandem with strategic handling of LP breeding populations for selection of improved G&E. Genetic improvement of G&E in LP germplasm should be possible through development of effective breeding methodologies, germplasm characterization, and selection of appropriate parents.
