Enhanced resistance in soybean germplasm and RNAi transgenic plants will
provide another set of tools to add to our “toolset” of using cultural practices,
predictive models, and fungicide application to manage white mold.
Objectives
1. Improve white mold resistance and agronomic properties of soybean through
breeding in multiple environments and through multiple generations.
2. Improve white mold resistance through RNA-interference and transgenic plants.
