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.
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.
