Research Project: Identify Soybean Varieties with Resistance to Phomopsis Seed Decay to Enhance Soybean Seed Quality (Mspb Project NO.: Li 30-3012)

Location: Crop Genetics Research Unit

Project Number: 6402-21220-010-21
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Mar 31, 2013

Objective:
Screening soybean varieties for resistance to Phomopsis seed decay (PSD).

Approach:
Field screening and laboratory seed quality assays will be conducted to determine: 1) the disease resistance of commercial available soybean varieties to Phomopsis seed decay (PSD); and 2) the virulence/aggressiveness of PSD isolates collected in Mississippi.
