SOYBEAN

Description

In the early 1990's, the foundations for an extremely interesting plan for the genetic improvement of soybean were laid in Italy. 
 This plan led to the development of conventional soybean varieties (BLANCAS) and a range of soybean with a low anti-nutritional factor content (HILARIO, AIRES, ASCASUBI, PEDRO and BAHIA). These varieties were bred using traditional methods, to produce material with a low anti-nutritional factor content. The varieties were obtained by manual cross-breeding, transporting the pollen of the variety without anti-nutritional factors to normal variety flowers and evaluating the seeds of individual pods. The selection and conservation of purity is based on the genealogical method. Seed multiplication is carried out in Italy, controlled by technicians.
