Adaptation of soybean to tropical environments for smallholder farmers
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
There are many traits that influence crop adaption to a new environment so that it can perform as a farmer would prefer. In these chapters, I have shown the influence of the genetic mechanisms behind pod shatter, days to ...
Viability, vigor, and field performance of a low phytic acid, high phytase activity soybean line, CAPPA
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Plants store inorganic phosphate (Pi) in seeds as phytic acid (PA). Phytic acid chelates essential macro and micronutrients in developing seeds forming phytate, which is nutritionally unavailable to monogastric livestock. ...
Modification of fatty acid composition in soybean seeds to improve soybean oil quality and functionality
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
The purpose of this project is to modify the fatty acid composition in soybean seeds to improve soybean oil quality and functionality. By sequencing the FAD2-1A and FAD2-1B genes in 24 plant introductions, we identified ...
