To characterize mechanisms responsible for enhanced photosynthetic cold stress tolerance, efficient carbon utilization/export and sustainable yield production in soybeans; to design efficient screening tests for photosynthetic soybean cold stress tolerance and low temperature insensitive flowering and maturity phenotypes; to identify soybean germplasm with enhanced cold stress tolerance and limited low temperature induced delay in reproductive development and maturity suitable for Western and Northern expansion; to identify and characterize mechanisms responsible for low temperature insensitive flowering and maturity phenotypes of soybeans.
