About the Presenter

Dr. Carter’s research mission is to provide innovative genetic solutions that help improve the nations’ profitability in soy production. As a geneticist and breeder, Dr. Carter’s attack on the problem is to broaden genetic diversity in applied U.S. soybean breeding. In that regard, crop diversity is recognized as the foundation of breeding progress and at the same time perhaps the weakest link in U.S. soybean breeding. Of the ~120 soybean breeders in the USA, Dr. Carter is one of only two (and the sole researcher in the southern USA) to devote his/her career to this issue.
