Project Summary

To improve soybean tolerance to waterlogging/flooding.

Project Objectives

1. Screen soybean germplasm and commercial cultivars for genetic tolerance to flooding.
2. Incorporate flood tolerance from identified source(s) into elite cultivars and lines.

Project Deliverables

This project will identify cultivars with flood tolerance so that specific recommendations can be made to producers. This project will also identify new sources of flood tolerance from diverse germplasm and incorporate such tolerance into high yielding background.

Progress of Work

Final Project Results

Benefit to Soybean Farmers

This research will provide flooding-tolerant germplasm and cultivars to help improve on-farm profit for soybean production as well as provide genetic sources for future breeding programs.
