Research Project: Discover and Deploy Novel Genes to Develop New Varieties and Germplasm with Elevated Meal Protein and Essential Amino Acids (MN)

Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research

Project Number: 6070-21220-069-101-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2021
End Date: Sep 30, 2022

Develop U.S. adapted high-yielding germplasm with >48% meal protein, =36% seed protein and >95% check yield and test environmental stability of seed protein

Conventional and marker assisted breeding, genomics approaches will be used to achieve this objective. NIR technology will be used to measure protein, oil and amino acids.
