Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research
Project Number: 6070-21220-068-04
Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2014
Continuation of breeding programs to combine or introduce genes that enable development of agronomic soybean germplasm with superior meal attributes that include increased total metabolizable energy, improved essential amino acid balance, and enhanced digestibility for feed applications. Research involving DNA marker methodology will be subcontracted through SCA to cooperators at UT, UGA, and NCSU.
