Economic Importance of soybean in India :Scientists have developed MACS 1407 using traditional cross breeding techniques. Its yield is 39 quintals per hectare.
During 2019, 9 crore tonnes of soybean was produced in India. India is trying to be among the leading soybean producing countries of the world. The new high yielding variety MACS 1407 soybean can be helpful in achieving this goal. This newly developed variety is suitable for cultivation in Assam, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and North Eastern states. Its seeds will be made available to the farmers for sowing during the kharif season of 2022 next year.
These high yielding and disease resistant varieties of soybean can increase the production capacity of India. It has been developed by scientists from MACS-Agrahar Research Institute (ARI), Pune, an autonomous institute of the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi has also cooperated in this.
Economic Importance of soybean in India :high yielding variety
Scientists have developed MACS 1407 using traditional cross breeding techniques. Its yield is 39 quintals per hectare. Because of this, it is the highest yielding variety. It is also resistant to major pests such as girdle beetle, leaf miner, leaf roller, stem fly, aphids, white fly and defoliator. Its thick stem, high above ground (7 cm) pod insertion and resistance to pod scattering make it suitable for mechanical harvesting as well.
