Brief Project Summary:

We will test our current diagnostic assays as means of pre-plant SDS risk assessment and work on an assay to quantify Fusarium brasiliense, a newly discovered SDS causing species in Michigan.
Seed treatments will be examined for their role in the management of SDS and SCN. Bayer Crop Sciences fungicide seed treatment ILeVO was registered for SDS and SCN in 2015, and in response a number of companies are testing additional products. We screen these new treatments and work with colleagues in neighboring states to validate company claims.
We will work with the MSU soybean breeding program to screen mapping populations and AYT lines for SDS resistance in the field. SDS inoculum will be produced...
