Soybean Sub - Programme

    Although IAR has no mandate for the genetic improvement of soybean, earlier studies on the crop were done in the Institute prior to its transfer to National Cereals Research Institute (NCRI) Badeggi. IAR still carries out agronomic work on soybean to meet the demand from that seven mandate states of the northwest agro-ecologocal zone. Nutrition and nitrogen fixation studies are still on-going to evaluate the nutritional requirements of newly released varieties from NCRI and IITA,Ibadan.
