Improving the fatty acid composition of soybean oil
- 92 Downloads
Efforts to improve the composition of soybean oil by breeding the beans for low linolenic acid in the oil have continued since 1968. This paper reports recent work using hybrid crosses and induced mutations. No lines are yet available that contain oil having less than 3% linolenic acid.
