High-yield soybeans in the saline-alkali land of the Yellow River Delta

Updatetime : 2021-10-12

Soybeans in saline-alkali soils with the salt content of up to five thousandths can not only grow well, but also produce high yields. This is the latest study of our lab in the Yellow River Delta, Dongying Molecular Design and Breeding Research Center base.

On October 11, the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology invited experts to test the production of the key deployment project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, "Molecular basis and variety cultivation of soybeans for high and stable yields". The results showed that in the soil of salt content up to five thousandths in the Yellow River Delta, the planted salt-tolerant soybean materials TZX-1736 and TZX-805 have yields of 264.8 kg and 263.3 kg per mu, which set a record for the new salt-tolerant soybean varieties. Besides, this data has surpassed our country's average soybean yield per mu (132.4 kg) in 2020.

The expert group agreed that these two soybean accessions have salt tolerance and high yield characteristics, which are important innovations in soybean salt and alkali tolerance study.
