Project Summary

The primary goal of this project is to develop productive group Ill, IV and V soybean varieties for Missouri with the high oleic and low linolenic traits. The outcome is to deliver soybean oil with a healthier profile and provide a more functional oil for food, feed and industrial applications. This is being accomplished using the patented, non-GMO, high oleic genes and methods discovered in Missouri by USDA and University of Missouri researchers.
