Research to support the enhanced nutritional energy meal trait for U.S. soybeans.
ARS will conduct research on the development of soybean materials to be tested in the upgraded poultry feeding experiments with existing sources of modified carbohydrate soybean germplasm. In addition, ARS will conduct research on the discovery aspect of the project to identify and characterize improved genetic sources for the enhanced nutritional energy meal (ENEM/modified carbohydrate) trait. We will also finalize the environmental stability project and support the molecular marker component for efficient breeding efforts in other aspects of the project.
