Project Number: 6070-21220-068-35-A
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jan 1, 2014
End Date: Nov 30, 2016
To develop high yielding drought tolerant cultivars adapted to North Carolina and other drought-prone U.S. environments.
A broad range of soybean germplasm will be compared for water use efficiency, drought tolerant nitrogen fixation, and stomatal response to drying air. Complementing greenhouse and field experiments will be conducted to examine these traits.
