Code: 9781838795566
E.E. Large, E. Beche, D. Mutoni and A. Scaboo, University of Missouri, USA

Chapter synopsis: Soybean cultivar selection techniques and advances in variety development continue to evolve. The planning that goes into selecting superior soybean varieties is currently complicated by changing environments, a growing global population and decreasing productive farmland. In this chapter, the most recent developments in modern conventional soybean breeding techniques are described in relation to sustainable soybean production.
