Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2012

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 PSD; and 2) The virulence/aggressiveness of PSD isolates collected in Mississippi.
