To develop maturity group III, IV and V soybeans high in oil with improved oil functionality with =65% oleic acid, =3% linolenic acid, and =7% saturates and ~20% stearic acid.
Utilize classical and marker assisted breeding approaches to introduce novel genes from adapted lines and plant introductions to develop high yielding varieties with: = 19% oil and = 35% protein >65% oleic acid and/or <3 % linolenic acid <7% saturates ~20% stearic acid.
