Brief Project Summary:

Frogeye leaf spot of soybean, caused by the fungus Cercospora sojina, is the most-damaging foliar disease of soybean that commonly occurs in Kentucky. Application of strobilurin fungicides was a common method of controlling frogeye leaf spot, but beginning in 2010, the first observations of strobilurin fungicide-resistant strains of C. sojina were documented in Kentucky and surrounding states. With the presence of these fungicide-resistant strains, management of frogeye leaf spot has become more challenging. Fortunately, soybean varieties with high levels of resistance to frogeye leaf spot are available. This research will evaluate the effect of foliar fungicides on soybean varieties that...

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.
