McNay Research and Demonstration Farm
The purpose of this test was to evaluate the experimental modified oil soybean lines adapted to southern Iowa. The 2010 Modified Oil Test included 1 percent linolenic, 2.5 percent linolenic, low saturates, and mid oleic, and for comparison of agronomic traits, commercially grown varieties released by Iowa State University. Oil from 1 percent linolenic, 2.5 percent linolenic, low saturates, and mid oleic soybean varieties grown in Iowa is used in the frying oil market. This oil is healthier for the consumer.
