Develop a seedling inoculation technique to evaluate soybean for resistance to Phomopsis seed decay.
A pilot study will be conducted to test a susceptible cultivar, and optimize conditions for the tests, such as the growth chamber’s temperature and humidity, pathogen ages, and plant growth stages; and will perform seedling inoculation on selected soybean varieties and plant introductions from our previous field trails at Stoneville and measure the stem lesion length after inoculation.
