Plant breeder boosts soybean diversity, develops soybean rust-resistant plant

It took decades of painstaking work, but research geneticist Ram Singh managed to cross a popular soybean variety ("Dwight"  Glycine max ) with a related wild perennial plant that grows like a weed in Australia, producing the first fertile soybean plants that are resistant to soybean rust, soybean cyst nematode and other pathogens of soy. Singh works in the Soybean/Maize Germplasm,...

Researchers find salt tolerance gene in soybean

A collaborative research project between Australian and Chinese scientists has shown how soybean can be bred to better tolerate soil salinity. The researchers, at the University of Adelaide in Australia and the Institute of Crop Sciences in the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing, have identified a specific gene in soybean that has great potential for soybean crop...

Uncovering the pathway to drought tolerant soybeans

Hot, dry conditions can wreak havoc on a field of soybeans. According to the National Center for Soybean Technology, “drought is the greatest threat to profitability.” It is hoped that w ork underway at South Dakota State University may change that. Assistant professor Jai Rohila of the biology and microbiology department is uncovering the molecular mechanisms that lead to drought and...

Fermented soybean meal has additional advantages for pig diets

In addition to protein content, lower cost, and lack of anti-nutritional factors, fermented soybean meal (FSBM) also meets pigs’ phosphorous requirements. Recently published work by the Hans Stein group at the University of Illinois (presented at the 44th Nottingham Feed Conference ) has found that pigs digest the phosphorous in FSBM better than the phosphorous in...
