Brief Project Summary:

The use of molecular markers has become an essential tool for soybean breeders involved in developing varieties with herbicide tolerance and resistance to aphids, nematodes and various diseases. Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers have been extensively used by soybean breeders to identify lines with the traits of interest. The use of molecular markers can substantially reduce the time required to develop new high-value, disease and insect resistant varieties for South Dakota farmers.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
