Brief Project Summary:

The long-term goal of this program is to identify exotic genes and incorporate the beneficial alleles into soybean varieties to improve their resistance to bio-stresses and to address other specific soybean breeding objectives. The research group have crossed wild soybean accessions in the USDA Germplasm Collection with elite soybean lines in an attempt to create resistances to iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC), soybean aphids and for other yield enhancing traits.

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.
