Plant Breeding and Germplasm Research Stations

The Soybean Innovation Lab Plant Breeding and Germplasm Researchers work with soybean breeders at three national research stations in Africa to increase their soybean breeding capacity, improve productivity of their breeding programs, develop new locally adapted soybean varieties, improve the performance of existing varieties and introduce elite germplasm from Brazil and the United States.  The three research locations are The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture in Zambia, Jimma Agricultural Research Center in Ethiopia and the Savanna Agricultural Research Institute in Ghana.
