Research Project: National USDA Uniform Soybean Tests/Yield, Disease Resistance and Quality Traits Evaluation of Public Breeding Lines

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21000-008-04-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2017
End Date: Sep 30, 2018

Objective:
Coordinate and participate in the Uniform Soybean Tests – Southern States and Northern States.

Approach:
The Uniform Soybean Tests is a cooperative testing program for U.S. public soybean breeders to obtain multi-state field data to support the release of varieties and germplasm. Separate tests for each of maturity groups OO to VIII will be grown in appropriate locations across 19 states and two Canadian provinces. Collaborators will screen lines for resistance to important soybean diseases and pests. Data for the northern and southern regions will be analyzed and published annual reports which will be made available in hard copy and online.
