Research Project: Field Evaluation of Soybean Lines for Resistance to Soybean Aphid

Location: North Central Agricultural Research Laboratory

Project Number: 5447-21220-005-06
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 28, 2011
End Date: Aug 27, 2016

Objective:
Advance soybean lines with field resistance to soybean aphid within the South Dakota State University soybean breeding program by crossing with contemporary soybean lines and re-evaluate resistance in crosses.

Approach:
A total of 330 early maturity soybean lines will be scored for resistance to soybean aphid infestation. The lines will be planted annually each in 3-ft long rows in a plot at the Eastern South Soil & Water Research Farm, replicated three times, and scored in August each year.
