Brief Project Summary:

The majority of soybean growers in Tennessee have shifted to using Roundup Ready soybeans because of its advantage of improved weed control and a significant improvement in yield. Realizing the importance of this issue, and the lack of data on current RR varieties, the Tennessee Soybean Promotion Board has funded this project over the last three years. Results from screening of the RR and the public breeding lines indicated the existence of moderately resistant lines among the lines tested. Validation of this test for the fourth year is necessary in order to confirm for consistency on the performance of these lines across years. These lines will be screened in known charcoal rot infested...

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.
