Project Summary

The use of the winter nurseries is an essential component of a successful soybean breeding and genetic program. Costa Rica, Puerto Rica are used so that crossing can be made in off-season for Missouri and year-round.  This greatly enhances the efficiency and timeliness of the Missouri soybean breeding program. These winter nurseries greatly support our breeding programs and are crucial in order to compete in variety performance and provide productive genetics for Missouri farmers.
