Management of Important Diseases and Pathogens that Affect Kentucky Soybean Production

Grants and Contracts Details


This project will focus primarily on field research designed to evaluate different practices for management of important soybean diseases across Kentucky. The primary diseases and pathogens focused on in this proposal are frogeye leaf spot (caused by Cercospora sojina), southern stem canker (caused by Diaporthe aspalathi), target spot (caused by Corynespora cassiicola), Phytophthora root rot (caused by Phytophthora sojae), and soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines). Treatments evaluated will include foliar fungicides, nematicide seed treatments, and different soybean varieties. The overall objective is to gain a better understanding on how to best manage these diseases and pathogens to improve soybean production in Kentucky and the region.
