Project Number: 5070-21000-036-20-A
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Oct 1, 2013
End Date: Dec 31, 2016
Develop and evaluate populations from elevated stearic acid mutants and higher stearic acid plant introductions.
Lines with the desired stearic acid from various combinations of mutant genes will be crossed to elite lines to begin development of adapted high stearic acid germplasm.
