Title: A METHOD TO IDENTIFY ASIAN SOYBEAN RUST RESISTANCE QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCI IN SOYBEAN AND COMPOSITIONS THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention is in the field of plant breeding and disease resistance. More specifically, the invention includes a method for breeding soybean plants containing quantitative trait loci that are associated with resistance to Asian Soybean Rust (ASR), a fungal disease associated with Phakopsora spp. The invention further includes germplasm and the use of germplasm containing quantitative trait loci (QTL) conferring disease resistance for introgression into elite germplasm in a breeding program for resistance to ASR.
