We are undertaking a comprehensive soyabean breeding program by using germplasm (or genetic resources) of seeds from across the globe that have desirable traits such as high oil content, greater pod size and count, and are drought and disease resistant.
The most advanced procedures that are available to expedite variety development, such as, DNA marker technology, state of the art genomics, and fingerprinting procedures will be utilised to accelerate modern variety development for India.
Further, the Company will strive to achieve its objectives at a faster rate and utilise the presence of multi-seasons and trials in India as well as with the use of off-season nurseries to rapidly advance generations.
The Company has seen good results in its Research and has already begun focus on other crops in India, including Pulses, Cereals, Grains and Vegetables.
