Brief Project Summary:

The goal of this nine state project is to develop management options for two Soybean Diseases, frogeye leaf spot (FLS) and charcoal rot. Specifically, researchers are evaluating genetic resistance to these diseases, developing techniques for assaying resistance, characterizing prominent pathotypes of the pathogens, and updating technical information on the incidence, severity and management. For both diseases, host resistance is the focus of the group to deliver long-term management options for the producer.

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.
