Brief Project Summary:

This project continues processing and evaluating soybean lines for charcoal rot resistance, frogeye leaf spot resistance and Phomopsis decay. Research includes validation of resistance to charcoal rot on individual soybean plant selections within breeding lines and Soybean Cyst Nematode germplasms, screening of commercial cultivars for charcoal rot, simultaneous evaluation of resistance to charcoal rot and drought tolerance, screening of conventional and breeding lines against Phomopsis seed decay and evaluation of soybean accessions and breeding lines for frogeye leaf spot resistance.

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