Pest-resistant soybeans grow out of MSU research lab
Date:8/3/2010

ector for the Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee. His group invested about $250,000 in grower assessment revenue since 2002 to fund Wang's research, earning first claim on licensing rights after MSU patented the resistance technology.

The germplasm already is the subject of growing interest among seed companies, which will cross it with their own varieties. The grower board will earn royalties from sale of seed company varieties containing the trait. A portion of those will come back to MSU, which will in turn distribute royalties to Wang, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and to the MSU Foundation.

"With one exception, all the major soybean genetics companies have licensed his germplasm because the level of resistance to soybean aphids is very high," Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Chairperson James Kells said. "We're very excited about this technology, and we see great potential for commercialization and impact on soybean growers in Michigan and the U.S."
