Objective 1: Locations in IL, IO, LA, and MS will be used to evaluate soybean genotypes for their sensitivty to green stem disorder. Tests will be conducted on selected soybean genotypes in experiment plots with the percent green stem disorder and yield recorded; Objective 2: Locations in AL, IL, IO, LA, and MS will be used to evaluate the effect of treatments (pesticides) on sensitivty to green stem disorder of selected genotypes. Standard protocol for setting up the field experiment plots will be used with the percent green stem disorder and yield recorded; and, Objective 3: Green stem disorder mapping populations will be developed after reciprocally crossing two soybean genotypes that differ in their sensitivity to green stem disorder with the goal of understanding the inheritance of sensitivity to green stem disorder.
