Abstract

sed oleic acid percentage has been proven successful in decreasing the percentage of linolenic acid in soybean oil (Burton et al., 1983). In the first four cycles of selection, the percentage of oleic acid in the seed oil increased linearly at an average rate of 1.6 + 0.2% per cycle whereas linoleic and linolenic acid percentages showed linear decreases. Four additional cycles of selection for increased oleic acid and two cycles for decreased oleic acid levels are currently being evaluated in a wide range of environ-ments.
