Summary: This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in all regions understand how the inheritance of soybean cultivar traits impacts the breeding program to develop new cultivars. Important genetic principles which influence selection response and breeding techniques will be discussed. A widely used classical breeding technique to develop new soybean cultivars will be diagrammed. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should have a better understanding of how soybean cultivars are developed and why some cultivar traits such as yield can vary across locations.
