Development of Maturity Group 00,0 and I Soybean Germplasm with 1-3% Higher Protein and Good Agronomic Quality
Soybean and Nitrogen Fixation Research
Project Number: 6645-21220-068-10
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2014
Develop and release maturity group (MG) 00, 0 and I lines with 1-3% higher protein and competitive yield; MG 00, 0, I lines with 3-6% higher protein, higher protein lines with hazard resistance, MG 00, 0, I lines with lower phytate and 1-3% higher protein, MG 00, 0, I lines with higher MET, CYS, THR, LYS.
Cross higher protein lines with higher yielding lines, advance populations via in-breeding, select plants/lines with higher protein and/or lower phytate, yield test selected lines.
