Brief Project Summary:

In recent years, the University of Illinois breeding program has developed and provided to the soybean industry new germplasm and varieties that have helped increase the profitability of soybean production in Illinois. In this project, high yielding germplasm with unique genes for disease and pest resistance will be developed.

As stated previously, resistance to SCN and soybean aphids in commercial soybean varieties trace to work done at the University of Illinois. The major focus of this work will be resistance to SCN, soybean aphids, sudden death syndrome, and Japanese beetles. In these projects, resistance genes that have been mapped, or we are in the process of mapping and confirming,...

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.
