Brief Project Summary:

This research intent is to determine mechanisms of soybean root infection from the soil reservoir by the charcoal rot pathogen and other fungi by identifying/understanding the range of mycotoxins used by these fungi to facilitate root infection. This knowledge can contribute to development of soybean cultivars that are resistant to these mechanisms.

Key Benefactors:
farmers, agronomists, extension agents, soybean breeders, seed company
