Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the Southeastern United States reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis) causes considerable damage and yield loss to soybean and cotton. No cotton varieties have reniform nematode resistance, whereas several sources of resistance exist in soybean. This resistance is often linked to resistance to the soybean cyst nematode. Use of resistant soybean in a rotation with cotton can be a useful option. Soybean breeding lines from Arkansas, Clemson, Missouri, and USDA programs in Jackson Tennessee with low reniform reproduction rates have been identified in greenhouse tests. Those lines not differing in reproductive indices from known resistant cultivars Forrest, Anand, and/or Hartwig in tests after inoculation with approximately 1,500 vermiform nematodes per 500 ml pot for at least 10 weeks in the years 2001-06 by program are: SC94-1573, SC95-1070, SC95-771, SC97-1770, SC97-259, SC98-1930, SC98-249, SC98-318, SC98-353, SC01-783A, SC01-810, SC02-208, SC02-210, SC02-211, SC03-045, SC03-9093, SC03-9153, SC03-9383, SC03-9438 (Clemson), S01-8401 (HP), S01-9265, S01-9364, S01-9391, S02-20388, S02-3934, S02-611 CR (Missouri), JTN-5203, JTN-5303, JTN-5503 (USDA, Jackson, TN), R97-1801, R00-1551, and R01-4747 (Arkansas). Use of these soybean breeding lines may prove very useful in breeding for reniform nematode resistance.
