In the late 2000s, Grover Shannon and the soybean breeding team at the University of Missouri’s Fisher Delta Research Center discovered a non-GMO high oleic trait that stemmed from a traditional cross in the field. Shannon then partnered with a USDA molecular geneticist, Kristin Bilyeu, to evaluate the importance of a non-GMO high oleic trait.

The resulting patents were licensed to the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council. Led by MSMC and funded through the soy checkoff, several land grant universities and private organizations are working to expand the trait to maturity groups 00 to VII.
