Brief Project Summary:

The goal of this project is to combine the modified oil traits with the low phytic acid mutant to produce a soybean having both traits. This combination should result in higher value products for the processor and prices paid to the producer. The specific objectives of this project are to develop soybean germplasm with low saturated, mid-oleic and low linolenic fatty acids; higher protein; and lower phytic acid levels. The researcher will develop and evaluate germplasm lines with combinations of these value-added 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.
