To develop high yielding drought tolerant cultivars adapted to South Carolina and other drought-prone U.S. environments.
A broad range of soybean germplasm will be screened for drought tolerance in the field. Also adapted drought tolerant breeding lines will be developed through empirical selection for seed yield under stress.
