Research Project: Drought Stress Tolerance in Georgia

Location:

Project Number: 6645-21220-068-16-S
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 1, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
To develop high yielding drought tolerant cultivars of soybean adapted to Georgia and other drought-prone U.S. environments.

Approach:
Soybean germplasm will be screened to identify drought tolerance. Putative tolerant types will be verified. Genetics of the tolerance will be investigated. Drought tolerance genes, as found, will be transferred to adapted cultivars. This work will be pursued in lab, greenhouse, and field studies.
