Brief Project Summary:

The proposed project is a continuation of our on-going projects on mapping and identification of genes controlling resistance to various Soybean Diseases including viruses. Our original virus research was initiated with "seed money" provided by the Virginia Soybean Board over a decade ago. The funds requested here are to supplement our large multi-institutional project expected to be funded by the USDAs National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) program on Global Food Security. The long-term goal of the proposed project is to develop disease-resistant and high-yielding soybean cultivars adapted to the Virginia growing conditions.

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.
