Brief Project Summary:

Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV), principally transmitted by the bean leaf beetle, and has caused a disease of major economic import in the North Central States. Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV), an aphid-borne virus is being detected with increasing frequency in soybeans grown in commercial fields in the North Central States apparently because of the introduction of the soybean aphid to these areas. As shown for aphid-transmitted soybean mosaic virus (SMV), control of the aphid with foliar insecticide application is unlikely to affect control of AMV. Research has suggested that foliar application of insecticide sprays to control the beetle is also unlikely to consistently control disease caused...

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.
