Brief Project Summary:

The objective is to quantify the bacterial blight's impact on soybean yield and seed quality. This objective will be met by conducting a field trial with varying levels of bacterial blight severity. Different disease severity levels will be obtained through pathogen inoculations and through the application of agricultural formulations of copper hydroxide (bactericide; i.e. Kosice, Champ, others). Yield and seed quality will be measured to determine the detrimental effects of varying levels of disease on soybean.

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.
