Brief Project Summary:

This is a continuation of a research project initiated in 2009 to evaluate the interactive effect of soybean cyst nematode (SCN) and Rhizoctonia solani (causal agent of Rhizoctonia root rot) on soybean growth and yield. Results from the 2009 field study indicate that R. solani significantly reduced plant stand on both an SCN susceptible and resistant cultivar; however, when fungicide treatments were applied to seed of an SCN susceptible cultivar, the plant stand was significantly less than the SCN resistant cultivar treated with fungicide seed treatments. These results indicate that fungicide seed treatments may not be as effective in preventing stand losses due to R. solani on SCN susceptible...

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.
