It will be a better soybean," says Grover Shannon, who works at the University of Missouri.

Typically, developing a new soybean variety takes about seven years. Shannon says he focused on his current research in 2009, putting 2016 as the first year at which high-oleic soybeans might be widely available to farmers.
Shannon and others have worked for years to develop soybean varieties without trans fat. But their efforts are garnering more public attention after the Food and Drug Administration announced Nov. 7 that it would ban artificial trans fat from processed foods.
High-oleic soybean oil wouldn't contain trans fat. That would help it compete against other oils, such as sunflower oil and canola oil, without trans fat.
Shannon is working with naturally occurring genes to develop his high-oleic varieties.
"We know where the genes are, so we can move faster now," he says.
...
It's just more functional oil," Shannon says.

A handful of high-oleic soybean varieties in Maturity Groups I and II could be available by 2016, and by 2018, available high-oleic varieties will span Maturity Groups 0 to VII, said Grover Shannon, a University of Missouri scientist who co-discovered the genes with USDA plant scientist Kristin Bilyeu.

...
Tests have shown the two genes can produce high-oleic and high-protein soybeans with competitive yields that farmers are likely to find worthwhile, Shannon said.
"The neat thing about it is that while a lot of mutant genes will have a negative effect on yield, with these genes, the beans can actually yield better," he said. "The overall soybean will be better -- not just the oil but also the meal."
Since the public high-oleic trait is the product of traditional breeding, any varieties sporting it can also avoid the costly, time-consuming process of deregulation that Monsanto and Pioneer's traits are bogged down in, Shannon added.
