Project Summary

Develop high-yielding MG 4-5 cultivars adapted to various environments and production systems in Arkansas.

Project Objectives

Develop high-yielding MG 4-5 cultivars (conventional and glyphosate tolerant) adapted to various environments and production systems in Arkansas. Develop new varieties and germplasm with resistance to soybean cyst nematode (SCN), root knot nematode (RKN), sudden death syndrome (SDS), stem canker (SC) or frogeye leaf spot (FLS).

Project Deliverables

Progress of Work

Final Project Results

Benefit to Soybean Farmers

The UA breeding program provides high-yielding cultivars with low costs to growers and seeds for the conventional and
GT (RR1) cultivars can be saved and re-used for planting. UA soybean releases have also served as crossing materials for public and private breeding programs.
