Hi-Oleic Trait Licensing Expands To Georgia

Missouri Soybeans’ patented high-oleic technology has made its way to the Deep South, after the organization signed a first-of-its-kind licensing deal with researchers at the University of Georgia.  Missouri Soy licensing director Bryan Stobaugh says the partnership is helping expand the growing regions where beans with the trait can grow.

Stobaugh says Missouri is in a unique position to expand new soybean traits to different growing areas.

Bryan Stobaugh of Missouri Soybeans notes research into cross-breeding high-oleic soybeans for hardier growing areas including Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota are underway with each state’s land-grant universities.
