The group, led by Grover Shannon, releases four to six new varieties into the market every year - and they just got a whole lot stronger with a key addition.
Pengyin Chen, a soybean breeding and genetics professor at the University of Arkansas, has joined the Fisher Delta Research Center, accepting the MU Division of Plant Sciences David M. Haggard Endowed Professorship of Soybean Breeding. Chen will replace Shannon as the head of the program, although Shannon will stay on in a part-time role to help with the transition. "What you've got in Pengyin is a man with outstanding credentials," Shannon said. "He's well-known worldwide. He's an excellent mentor and trainer of students. "Grover has one of the top programs in the nation, with great support all around. Shannon and Chen have collaborated on several projects since Chen joined the University of Arkansas in 2001. Their relationship goes back much farther than that, however. The duo met in the late 1980s, as Chen was finishing his Ph.D. at Virginia Tech.

Expand Pengyin Chen and Grover Shannon have known each other since the late 1980s. A lot of Shannon and Chen's work together has focused on high-oleic soybeans. Mizzou has two patents dealing with high-oleic soybeans. "We've done a lot of things together," Shannon said. "We have a lot of joint research together, much of which focuses on high-oleic soybeans." Shannon has been working with soybeans for 40 years. He received his Ph.D. in genetics and plant breeding from Purdue University in the early 1970s after receiving his undergraduate degree from Mississippi State University. He began his career at the Fisher Delta Research Center in 1974. After stops at other locations, Shannon has been back at Fisher Delta for the past 20 years. "My heart has always been in soybeans," Shannon said.

Shannon has played a huge role in that emergence - and he's happy to see where Chen takes the program. "He'll come in and take MU to new places," Shannon said. "I'm looking forward to helping Pengyin in the next year or so. Pengyin will inherit a powerful team that Grover put together.
