The Locke lab is interested in crop-environment interactions, especially abiotic stress. We study G × E interactions among diverse soybean germplasm and aim to identify mechanisms that determine stress tolerance and seed composition. Our current projects include:
- Determining environment-specific benefits and trade-offs of soybean drought tolerance traits
- Minimizing carryover herbicide damage to soybean production
- Optimizing management practices for nitrogen metabolism and seed protein
- Investigating abiotic stress impacts on seed composition
