Research Project: Physiological Approaches to Develop Stress Tolerant Soybean Varieties for North Carolina

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

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.
