Research presented at APS Annual meeting in Honolulu.
Students and staff in the Laboratory for Soybean Disease Research work on a multitude of projects in the areas of epidemiology, pathogen variability and host resistance. Specific projects include research on pathogens and pests of soybean like soybean rust, charcoal rot, soybean aphids, soybean viruses, root and stem rots, sudden death syndrome, green stem disorder and other soybean diseases.
The Lab also contributes significantly to the Varietal Information Program for Soybeans (VIPS), including evaluation of soybean varieties for resistance to Phytophthora root rot, Sclerotinia stem rot, soybean aphid, soybean mosaic virus, and sudden death syndrome. This program helps soybean growers with soybean variety selection. You can read more about the VIPS program at vipsoybean.org web.aces.uiuc.edu/VIPS
