Brief Project Summary:

Annually, seedling diseases are responsible for losses estimated at 8.7 million bushels in Illinois. The response of soybean and these diseases to fungicide seed treatments can be highly variable. Variable responses can be due to differences in pathogen pressure and environmental conditions just prior to and after planting. Despite variable responses to seed treatments, seed companies have plans to increase the amount of soybean seeds that are treated. Although fungicide seed treatment studies have been conducted in Illinois, these trials tend to be very limited in the number of locations (only one or two locations, generally) and number of products evaluated. In addition, many new products...

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.
