Potential industrial uses spell market opportunity for new soybean
Renowned Guelph soybean breeder first discovered variety 20 years ago
By Lilian Schaer
Guelph - A soybean variety first identified at the University of Guelph twenty years ago is now seeing a future as a possible feedstock for industrial uses.
Currently known as OAC 13-55C-HL, the soybean is high in linoleic fatty acids, lending itself particularly well to industrial material applications like paints, coatings, polyols and epoxies.
