Project Summary

Fusarium solani root rot is one of the most significant root rot problems in Minnesota. This project will use a technique, developed from previous studies, to screen soybean varieties and germplasm from maturity groups grown in Minnesota for resistance to taproot infections caused by Fusarium solani isolates collected from Minnesota soils. This project will also determine if susceptibility to infection by Fusarium solani is increased by infection with soybean cyst nematodes.

Project Objectives

1. Screen soybean varieties and germplasm from maturity groups grown in Minnesota for resistance to taproot infections caused by Fusarium solani isolates collected from Minnesota soils.
2. Determine if susceptibility to infection by Fusarium solani is increased by infection with soybean cyst nematodes.
