Brief Project Summary:

This proposal will address four focus areas:
1. Study of white mold epidemiology for improved management:
a. Determine conditions necessary for white mold spore release and when plants become infected to improve timing of foliar fungicides and management decisions such as irrigation
b. Validate and improve a disease forecasting model

2. Investigate the profitability of foliar fungicides:
a. Evaluate foliar fungicide and biological products and application timing for improved white mold management
b. Evaluate profitability of foliar fungicides in the absence of disease

3. Screen soybean germplasm for white mold resistance
a. Screening of promising WM resistant germplasm from University...

Performance will be evaluated monthly through lab meetings, and through multistate meetings with collaborating institutions.

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.
