Screening Soybean Varieties for Dicamba Resistance (Conditional on EPA Use Approval)
Finding and developing Midsouth varieties that are tolerant to Dicamba drift
About this research project
MoSoy Investment = $16,375
The objectives of this project are to 1) characterize soybean line response to Dicamba drift; 2) identify the regions of the soybean genome that control response to tolerance of Dicamba; 3) find and develop Midsouth soybean varieties that are tolerant to Dicamba drift and 4) develop markers to find soybean lines with Dicamba Tolerance to expedite breeding.
