Mapping novel genes for SCN resistance and breeding for soybean cultivar with SCN resistance in maturity group II-IV.
The objective will be achieved by mapping QTL for SCN resistance in a mapping population developed by USDA-ARS scientist in Tennessee by genotyping with SNP markers. He will conduct the phenotyping on it. The SCN resistant breeding lines will be developed by crossing SCN resistant soybean lines from other states to the SCN resistant cultivars from Ohio and selecting for the resistant progeny.
