Brief Project Summary:

A preliminary study was conducted at two locations in Illinois, twelve fungicide seed treatments (including an untreated control) with two cultivars, one moderately susceptible to SDS and the other moderately resistant to SDS. Roots were collected four times during the season and will be assayed using quantitative PCR (Q-PCR) to determine the level of infection by Fusarium virguliforme. Additionally, digital images of the roots were analyzed for size and number of secondary roots using WinRhizo software. Fungicide seed treatments significantly increased plant stand at one of the two locations and some seed treatments reduced the amount of Fusarium virguliforme DNA in soybean roots at 32...

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.
