Project Summary

The objective of this project is to continue the evaluation of Minnesota-adapted public and private soybean varieties for resistance to SDS under field and greenhouse conditions using disease isolates collected from Minnesota soils. The researchers will also determine the prevalence of SDS in Minnesota and evaluate the effectiveness of seed treatments and varietal resistance to Soybean Cyst Nematode in limiting yield losses from SDS.

Project Objectives

1. Evaluate Minnesota-adapted public and private soybean varieties for resistance to SDS under field and greenhouse conditions using pathogen isolates collected from Minnesota soils.
2. Determine the prevalence of SDS in Minnesota.
3. Evaluate the effectiveness of seed treatments and varietal resistance to Soybean Cyst Nematode in limiting yield losses from SDS.
