Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 1, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2013
Increase soybean yield in MG-II to IV by incorporating high-yield genes from diverse introduced soybean lines.
The objective will be achieved by making crosses with 25% or higher plant introduction pedigrees to elite soybean lines from northeastern USA. The breeding lines will be advanced and tested against high yield checks. High performing lines will be released as germplasm or cultivars. Conventional and molecular assisted breeding will be used.
