Development of Functional Ultra High Stearic Acid Soybean Germplasm
Developing soybean germplasms adapted to the Mid-South
About this research project
MoSoy Investment = MoSoy Investment = $6,250
The objectives of this research project are to 1) molecularly characterize two populations segregating for stearic acid content using genomic sequencing and functional markers; 2) investigate and validate the compensation effect of different mutation combinations on stearic acid content and potentially negative agronomic traits and 3) develop soybean germplasms adapted to the mid-southern U.S with functional ultra-high stearic acid content and little or no detrimental effects on agronomic traits.
