SDS cover

SDS: Finding Solutions for Farmers

There’s a lot going on with sudden death syndrome (SDS), now one of the top four yield-robbing diseases in soybean and spreading fast.

On the positive side, scientists are breeding varieties with better resistance, and learning more about how and when SDS infects soybean plants.

SDS:Finding Solutions for Farmers is a 12-page report on SDS, packed with current research-based information (and outstanding questions) about this complex disease and how to manage it.

Research Initiatives 2010

NCSRP Research Initiatives 2010

Research on the soybean aphid is moving forward on several major fronts which, in combination, will make a significant long-term positive impact for growers. More genes for resistance to SDS have been found, opening possibilities for effective new soybean varieties. SCN continues to be a leading cause of soybean yield loss in the U.S. — variety selection and continued sampling- is the key.
