Brief Project Summary:

The strategic goal is to conduct a coordinated regional soybean aphid research program to gain insight on the management, implementation of classic biological control, and to answer fundamental questions regarding the nature of host plant resistance soon to be deployed commercially in 2010 to manage soybean aphid. The project provides for a network of collaborating entomologists, plant breeders, and Extension specialists in twelve states to develop answers to complex issues facing soybean growers in managing the soybean aphid.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
