Bio/Research

Soybean Breeding & Genetics: Prof. Rajcan is involved in breeding soybeans to develop new high-yielding, high quality and disease resistant varieties for the short- and medium-season soybean growing areas of Canada. Most varieties developed in this program are rated within the range of 2400 to 2900 crop heat units (CHU), or relative maturity groups 000 to I (USDA classification). They are grown primarily in Ontario but also in Quebec, southern Manitoba and some European countries.

In support of the breeding program, research is conducted in two main focal areas of interest: (1) soybean seed quality traits in relation to developing value-added products for niche markets (output traits) and, (2) the genetics of soybean disease resistance.
