Biography


Projects as Lead Investigator

Projects

Project Title
Towards the Development of High-Yielding Cultivars & Germplasm with Optimum Oil and Protein Content and Innovative Oil Attributes for the Current Market
Breeding & Development of a Breadth of SB Cultivars
Increasing the rate of genetic gain for yield in soybean breeding programs
Due to the tendency for soybeans produced in eastern states to have a higher protein content and the state’s access to overseas markets, Ohio has become one of the leading producers of food grade soyb
Specialty soybean cultivars for Ohio producers
Identification of Phytophthora sojae Quantitative Resistance Genes Using an Innovative eQTL Approach
Development of Soybean Cultivars with Increased Seed Oil Content While Maintaining Protein and Yield (Year 1 of 1420-632-6606)
Development of improved soybean varieties and germplasm for Ohio
Assessment of variation in soybean seed quality traits
