Research Project: Drought Stress Tolerance in North Carolina

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-068-17-S
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

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

To develop high yielding drought tolerant cultivars adapted to North Carolina and other drought-prone U.S. environments.

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.
