The quality and moisture content of the seeds at harvest can significantly influence profitability.
The overall goal of this project is to identify management practices to increase soybean yield potential and close gaps in Iowa.
DNA is everywhere, including the root system of plants. Up until now few have studied the genetic basis of root structure because it’s difficult to observe how roots grow underground.
AMES, Iowa – An Iowa State University agronomist is charting mechanisms – gene by gene – that could lead to soybean varieties resistant to sudden death syndrome.
