Location: Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research
Project Number: 6070-21220-068-42
Start Date: Jan 01, 2014
End Date: Nov 30, 2016
A broad range of soybean germplasm will be screened for drought tolerance in the field and greenhouse. Genetics of tolerance will be ascertained through QTL mapping. Also adapted drought tolerant breeding lines will be developed through empirical selection for seed yield under stress.
