Information And Results
Project Deliverables

1. Continue to develop new varieties and/or experimental lines, derived from different exotic germplasm, that are equal to or better than the best commercial varieties in yield.
2. Improve the yield and germination of seed in lines grown in the early planting production system in the mid-south.
3. Identify new regions of the soybean chromosome in exotic germplasm that affect yield and move these into regions of high yielding lines.

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.
