Technical Abstract: Isolate Monticello of Fusarium solani was increased on sterilized sorghum seeds. Inoculum was placed about 2 cm below soybean seeds at planting. Symptoms, based on foliar severity where 1 = no symptoms to 5 = severe interveinal chlorosis and necrosis, were recorded 3 weeks after planting. Plant introductions (PI567290-567.781) were inoculated with F. solani in a series of eight screens. In the final screen, 23 PIs were advanced to a replicated experiment. Three PIs had significantly (P=0.05) less symptoms than the other PIs and the resistant check. In another study, a set of 30 soybean entries ranging from susceptible to resistant to F. solani based on field reactions were inoculated in the greenhouse and in field microplots. Significant (P=0.05) differences in AUDPC values occurred between the entries tested in the greenhouse and microplots with a significant (P=0.002) positive correlation (r = 0.56) between the field and greenhouse data.
