Research Project: Identification and Utilization of Exotic Germplasm to Improve Soybean Productivity

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6070-21220-068-51-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 1, 2014
End Date: Dec 31, 2016

Increasing soybean yield in MG-II to IV by incorporating high-yield genes from diverse soybean lines with genes from plant introductions.

High-yielding elite lines from Ohio will be crossed to breeding lines from collaborators, progenies will be advanced by early generation testing or single seed descend to F5 generation and yield tested over locations and years. The best lines will be selected and released as germplasm.
