Brief Project Summary:

White mold can be a significant limitation to soybean production in Michigan. Although losses to white mold are worse in some years than others, there is always a part of the state that is affected by this disease. The purpose of these trials is to improve our understanding of when ascospores of the white mold fungus are released, so that we can improve fungicide or biological application timing.

Foliar fungicides can form part of an integrated management plan for white mold. However, selection of products with proven efficacy and appropriate timings are essential to maximize disease control and return on the foliar fungicide investment. In this proposal, we will determine the efficacy...

Information And Results
Project Deliverables

Performance will be evaluated monthly through lab meetings.
Resources developed such as isolate collections will be made available to soybean breeders for the screening of germplasm resistance.

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.
