Research Summary

Development and release of superior soybean varieties, Identification and deployment of desirable trait genes

Lin is a soybean breeder at the Fisher Delta Research, Extension, and Education Center (FD-REEC) focusing on soybean cultivar development and germplasm enhancement (maturity group III and IV). His primary goal is to ensure a steady flow of releasing superior conventional and herbicide tolerant soybean varieties adaptive to Southeast Missouri and Mid-South U.S. His research focuses on the improvement of soybean seed quality traits (high yield potential, high protein, high oleic, etc), pest and disease resistance (SCN, RKN, PRR, etc), abiotic stress tolerance (drought, flooding, salinity, etc), and incorporation of genetic diversities.
